NCEA Level 1 History

11HIS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: G. Hampton

History is the study of past events connected with particular places and people. History helps students to understand people and societies, to investigate their own moral standing on issues and gives perspectives on what it means to be a responsible citizen. 

In History students develop skills in assessing evidence and conflicting interpretations of events and people, critical thinking and the ability to gather, analyse and communicate information. 

At Level 1 there is an emphasis on major events of the 20th and 21st Centuries with a focus on the causes and consequences of these events. Events may include NZ disasters, The Rise of the Nazis and the Holocaust and the Black Civil Rights Movement. 

Content/Skills:

  • Historical investigation (The Holocaust);
  • Understanding a historical event (New Zealand event of own choice);
  • Demonstrate an understanding of perspectives of people of an historical event (USA civil rights); and
  • Causes and consequences of a historical event.

This subject leads to a University Entrance approved subject.
