Modern history

Modern history is designed to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding, the skills of critical analysis and synthesis, and values and attitudes essential to an appreciation of forces that have shaped the modern world; to develop a lifelong interest in the study of history; and to prepare them for informed and active citizenship in the contemporary world.

Topics covered:

  • World War One (1914-1919)
  • one national study
  • one personality in the twentieth century
  • one international study in peace and conflict.

The key competencies of collecting, analysing and organising information and communicating ideas and information reflect core processes of historical inquiry and are explicit in the objectives and outcomes of the syllabus.
