HISTORY 31F - Full Year

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs H. Knight

Students continue with their investigation into major events of the past that shape the world that we live in today. The main themes studied at Year 13 include Discrimination and Persecution and the development of New Zealand's Identity. Skills from Year 11 and 12 History are consolidated and developed to a higher level.

Topics studied are:
Witchcraft - Witch Hunts and the Salem Witch Trials - A study of the development, spread and beliefs behind European Witchcraft, the persecution, of witches and their trials. This will consist of viewing the witch trials and beliefs of the common folk from a religious, economic and political perspective.
Inequalities - An overview of inequalities through time between the sexes, with a focus on New Zealand and its search for the rights for women, from Kate Sheppard and the fight for the right to vote to women’s struggle for greater equality. How did women’s suffrage succeed?
New Zeland Land Wars - this is the basis of the two internal assessments

If a student achieves 14 Level 3 credits in this course it will be counted as an approved subject for University Entrance.

Future Possibilities
A student who has completed Level 3 History will have developed analytical and writing skills which may be applied in most other subjects. Specifically, study can lead to careers in foreign affairs, law, journalism, broadcasting, travel, teaching, Government Departments, marketing management, research and any vocation requiring excellent communication and investigative skills.
