HISTORY (AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM)

The Australian Curriculum History course, ‘The Revolution that Shaped the Modern World (1750-1918)’ is compulsory for all students. In addition, an elective subject “Power in the 20th and 21st Centuries” is also offered.

Both courses aim to impart knowledge and understanding, in addition to the development of skills used in the process of historical inquiry. Significant emphasis is placed upon independent study skills through the promotion of varied research methodologies.

History aims both to interest and stimulate students, whilst developing the individual skills and responsibility required for the continuation of History in the senior years.

This subject provides a study of the history of the making of the modern world from 1750 to 1918. It was a period of industrialisation and rapid change in the ways people lived, worked and thought. It was an era of nationalism and imperialism, and the colonisation of Australia was part of the expansion of European power. Ultimately the significance of the First World War as the culmination of this changing world will be explored.
