The level 78 History program at Ao Tawhiti for 2022 is designed to extend students in the study of History for higher levels of assessment with an additional focus on assessments in Sociology. Students who have completed level 1 NCEA history assessments can work towards level 2 while those with prior success at level 2 can work towards level 3 and UE. Building on the skills and knowledge gained at level 1, the major concentration over the year will be on developing different lenses of analysis and refining our thinking as historians.

In term 1 we will establish expectations for the year and begin work on specific assessments. The context of study for term 1 will be the historical and sociological significance of the Dawn Raids, with specific focus on the role of racism, power, identity and belonging. Analysis of resources and the role of the historic research process will drive our specific learning outcomes. Assessment opportunities exist for Level 2 History 91229 and Level 2 Sociology 28120, as well as L3 History 91434 and level 3 Sociology 28121 (through negotiation with Richard)*.

Term 2 builds on the learning from term 1 and is devoted to supporting students towards assessment of differing historical perspectives. This inquiry builds on successful research from term 1, with students’ self-management and reflection on learning key outcomes. Understanding the use of historical resources to identify significance as well as to explain differences of opinion, values and actions are part of the learning focus for this term. Assessment opportunities exist for Level 2 History 91232 and Level 3 History 91437.

Term 3 offers the opportunity to develop effective communication of key ideas from an independent research project and will involve creating a Teaching and Learning Resource based on a topic of individual choosing. Assessment opportunities exist for Level 2 History 91230 and Level 3 History 91435.
Students are supported towards one additional NCEA assessment through external exam preparation in term 4.

It is important to view History as a yearlong program. Term 1 is essential for students' understanding of the expectations around assessments for the rest of the year. While term 3 is an opportunity for independent research, term 2 will help to establish the expectations needed for assessment in term 3.
