New History Syllabus 11-12

5 June 2018

Dr Jennifer Lawless and Jonathon Dallimore discuss what to do with the new Stage 6 Ancient and Modern History courses and see much to be excited about.

I hope a lot of people will be willing to try some of these new topics and I think they will … In terms of the topic flow, the cores do an important thing in setting up the flavour of the course… This new Core for Modern revamps the flavour of Modern History for a new course and a new generation.

… Some of the areas teachers need to stop and think about are the skills and the concepts and how we are trying to integrate some of those higher-order concepts a little more specifically… it is quite easy to introduce these…

We tend to start Year 11 as a clean slate and it is important to look back at the end of Year 10 and consider the step up to the new Year 11 outcomes too….
