HISTORY (AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM)
(a semester subject)
History: Australia and the Modern World
The Australian History Curriculum is taught to all Year 10 students.
The Year 10 curriculum provides a study of the history of the modern world and Australia from 1918 to the present, with an emphasis on Australia in its global context. The twentieth century became a critical period in Australia’s social, cultural, economic and political development. The transformation of the modern world during a time of political turmoil, global conflict and international cooperation provides a necessary context for understanding Australia’s development, its place within the Asia-Pacific region, and its global standing.
