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. There are many aspects of Aotearoa History in which are directly related to Te Tiriti o Waitangi in which you can research. You will be researching using both primary and secondary sources in order to gain a deeper understanding of this significant historical event.
  • Anti-Semitism - this topic will look at the causes and consequences of the Holocaust including discussing current events. Understanding the impact of the Wannsee Conference and the implementation of the Final Solution will be prominent in this course, and understanding how this event effected people and their lives over a period of time and in different ways. Hearing survivor stories and understanding the event through people and who they were and are, will also be a large part of this course.
How will this course be assessed?
From a choice of 5 NCEA Level 3 History Achievement Standards:
  • Three internally assessed standards that make up 15 credits
  • Two externally assessed standards that make up 10 credits
Will there be any FAO?  (Further Assessment Opportunities)
No FAOs will be offered during this year course.

What are the course costs? TBC
