The Year 10 History course focuses on the history of the modern world from 1918 to the present, with an emphasis on Australia in its global context.
This semester-long course will provide students with a necessary context for understanding Australia's development, its place within the Asia-Pacific region and its global standing. The two depth studies that students will focus on are 'WWII (1939-45)' and 'Popular Culture (1945-Present)'.
During the Year 10 History course, students will have the opportunity to further develop their critical thinking skills through analyzing different interpretations of the past and considering the significance of historical events from a range of perspectives. The course's emphasis on developing students' research skills, their understanding of key historical concepts, and the interpretation of historical sources will provide students with skills and knowledge they will require for the Ancient History and Modern History courses in Senior School.
