13 History 1
Teacher in Charge: Miss O. Markham
Year 13 History continues to build on skills previously learnt through the study of History at other levels Students will analyse historical events through research, examination of perspectives, examining historical sources and structured essay writing. Our programme and its requirements prepare students very well for tertiary level study.
The topics focus on how competing ideologies can result in conflict and on different perspectives of particular events. Students will study the New Zealand Wars with a focus on the invasion of the Waikato. The origins and impacts of these wars will be a focus. The programme will also look at the origin and key events in the Cold War focussing on different perspectives.
