What should I have already achieved?

Preferably 12 NCEA Level 2 History or English credits, but anyone may select this course. Some
students may apply for alternative entry - this will be after a conversation with your Learning Advisor and
at the discretion of the teacher in charge of the course.
What will I learn?
We will continue building on the historical skills we started to develop in Level 2, with more emphasis on
using and analysing primary sources. The topics will include:
  • Te Tiriti o Waitangi - this topic will look at the what some say is the 'founding document' of Aotearoa/New Zealand. You will be researching both primary and secondary sources to complete the internal assessment - AS91434. You will then use your research to complete the internal assessment - AS91435.
  • Anti-Semitism - this topic will look at the causes and consequences of the Holocaust including discussing current events. The internal assessment - AS91437 will be attached to this topic and the external assessment - AS91239 will be based on.
How will this course be assessed?
From a choice of 5 NCEA Level 3 History Achievement Standards:
  • Two internally assessed standards that make up 10 credits
  • Two externally assessed standards that make up 10 credits
Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)
Students will have the opportunity to complete a FAO on TWO of the History internal standards (AS91434 & AS91435). Also, any students wanting to better their History grades will have the opportunity to complete the FAO as well.

What are the course costs? TBC
