Year 10 History
Subject Name: History
Level: Year 10
The Year 10 curriculum provides a study of the history of the modern world and Australia from 1918 to the present, with an emphasis on Australia in its global context.
The twentieth century became a critical period in Australia’s social, cultural, economic and political development. The transformation of the modern world during a time of political turmoil, global conflict and international cooperation provides a necessary context for understanding Australia’s development, its place within the Asia-Pacific region and its global standing.
The content provides opportunities to develop historical understanding through key concepts, including evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, perspectives, empathy, significance and contestability. These concepts may be investigated within a particular historical context to facilitate an understanding of the past and to provide a focus for historical inquiries.
The history content at this year level involves two strands:
• historical knowledge and understanding
• historical skills
Key Inquiry Questions
A framework for developing students’ historical knowledge, understanding and skills is provided by inquiry questions through the use and interpretation of sources.
The key inquiry questions for Year 10 are:
• How did the nature of global conflict change during the twentieth century?
• What were the consequences of World War II? How did these consequences shape the modern world?
• How was Australian society affected by other significant global events and changes in this period?
Year 10 History is a pre-cursor to SACE History. Performance at Year 10 will provide a guide to selection of Stage 1 subjects.
