Year 11 History (11HIS)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs K. Mitchell

This course explores how historians engage in finding out about the past. We analyse how and why change has occurred in human societies over time. An appreciation of the past allows a more thorough understanding of the present. History teaches analytical skills applicable to a range of occupations and research and communication skills transportable to most jobs. 

This pathway provides students with knowledge and skills that are relevant for a wide range of occupations such as law, journalism, the media, politics, human resources, research, nursing, primary, secondary and tertiary teaching, medicine, management and many other careers

Year 11 History will focus on the theme of Crisis and Confrontation, exploring the following topics:

  • History Detectives: How do we find out about the past?
  • Aotearoa's not-so-perfect past: The Dawn Raids, Māori Land March, Bastion Point Occupation and 1981 Springbok Tour
  • Hitler’s rise to power and the outbreak of World War Two
