The S1/S2 Course reflects the Experiences and Outcomes from Curriculum for Excellence in Social Studies, People Past Events and Societies. Learning is active, stimulating and hopefully enjoyable! ICT is used whenever appropriate.
What will we study?
The topics will vary but may include:
- Our local history – key events in the history of this area
- An investigation into the reasons for the Titanic Disaster
- Life in Nazi Germany
- The JFK Assassination
What will we study?
At National Levels, we will look at a Scottish, a British and a European and World unit of study. Personalisation and choice will be incorporated when pupils carry out their Added Value Unit for National 4 courses or the Assignment at National 5 level. Again, the topics covered may vary but we are currently studying Scotland and the Great War (Scottish Unit), Britain and the Atlantic Slave Trade (British Unit) and the USA 1850-80 (European and World Unit).
What skills will we help develop?
As well as covering content, we will focus on teaching the skills necessary to the study of history such as remembering, research, analysing and evaluating. Skills for life and work will also be practised with numeracy, literacy and health and wellbeing playing a core role in lessons. These first few years will give your child an insight into the subject and a valuable grounding in skills that will not only help them to study History, but are also transferable to their other subjects and to life in general.
In History at this level pupils will develop their understanding of the world by learning about other people and their values, in different times, places and circumstances. They will study a Scottish, a British and a World history unit.
Assessment for this course comprises 2 exam papers and an extended essay, all externally marked by SQA, as well as 3 NABs which are internally marked.
The aims of the Advanced Higher History Course are to acquire depth in the knowledge and understanding of historical themes and to develop skills of analysing issues, developments and events, drawing conclusions and evaluating sources. These aims will be achieved through the study of a chosen context – the one currently on offer is the Soviet Union 1917-53.
The assessment of this course takes the form of one exam paper covering both essay-writing and source-handling skills. Candidates will also be required to undertake the planning, research, preparation and presentation of a dissertation on a defined historical issue relating to their Field of Study. An internally assessed NAB is also part of assessment.
