Modern History


Studying the Modern History ATAR course enables students to become critical thinkers and helps inform their judgements and actions in a rapidly changing world.

Students are exposed to a variety of historical sources, including government papers, extracts from newspapers, letters, diaries, photographs, cartoons, paintings, graphs and secondary sources, in order to determine the cause and effect, and the motives and forces influencing people and events.

Through the process of historical inquiry, students are encouraged to: question and evaluate historical sources; identify various representations and versions of history; use evidence to formulate and support their own interpretations; and, communicate their findings in a variety of ways.
