Level 5-6 Holistics 2020
5/6 HOLISTICS 2020
Holistics classes at Ao Tawhiti are grounded in the social sciences but integrate other parts of the curriculum where possible for a richer, more authentic learning experience. The social sciences learning area is about people, groups, and societies, and about how they work. It encourages us to participate as critical, active, informed, and responsible citizens. We learn using examples from the past, present and future, from Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond.
The aims of this course are as follows:
*To provide a broad coverage of the four main strands of the social studies curriculum (the economic world, continuity and change [history], place and environment, and identity, culture and organisation);
*To integrate social studies strands with other curriculum areas where possible to enable a richer, more authentic learning experience;
*To teach and practise a range of social studies skills;
*To support students to transition from level 5 to level 6 of the curriculum; and
*To provide students with opportunities to participate in guided, structured ncea assessments.
