1 KNES History Course Outline Year 10 There are many different reasons to study history, as it is a fantastic combination of all the other school subjects. History helps students to develop critical thinking skills to look beyond the basic facts, to ask questions properly, and to express their opinions appropriately. History trains your mind and teaches you how to think and process information. History students are rounded individuals who develop an understanding of both past and present by understating that events and actions have causes and consequences. History helps you understand the world we live in by engaging with the past. It deepens our understanding of political and social problems. A lack of historical knowledge prevents people from truly understanding the world they live in. History makes you appreciate that people in the past were not just 'good' or 'bad', but motivated in complex and inconsistent ways, just like us today. History students learn to use all forms of evidence to examine, interpret, revisit, and reinterpret the past. These include not just written documents, but also oral communication and objects such as buildings, artefact s, photographs, and paintings. The use of numerical data, science and ICT all assist our understanding of the past. History students are trained to evaluating evidence and data from a wide variety of sources before drawing a conclusion. For these reasons History is regarded as one of the best subjects to have a qualification in, especially for a future career in Law, Business, Politics and Diplomacy. In Term 1, This term Year 9 will study life global events such as World War 1, World War 2 and the Cold War. They will examine the major events that occurred during this period. The focus of study this term will be on life in the early 1900s, the build up to war and World War 1.. In Term 2, This term Year 9 will study the events leading to World War 2 the war itself. They will look at key events such as the Evacuation of Dunkirk, The London Blitz and D-Day. They will also examine why Germany and its allies lost the war and why Britain, the USA and their allies won. In Term 3, This term Year 9 will study life global events with a focus on the Cold War and the civil right movement in the USA.. They will examine the major events that occurred during this period such as the start of the nuclear age, the setting up of the United Nations, the Berlin Blockade, the Berlin Airlift and Space Race.
