100HST
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Wright

Students study a range of topics drawn from New Zealand and World history. These topics and studies aim to improve skills in gathering and classifying information, weighing evidence, recognising bias and propaganda, recognising differing points of view and different historical interpretations.  Recognising cause and effect, forming judgements and making generalisations based on evidence and sound argument and presenting material which is accurate, logical, concise and clear are also skills taught in History. There is a major research component, worth 8 credits, answering questions focusing about a student selected event. The theme for this year is ‘What is a Historian?’
