Year 9 - History

Course Overview

In History, students study The Making of the Modern World from 1750 to 1918 via elective units such as: The Industrial Revolution, The Movement of Peoples (slaves, convicts and settlers), Making a Nation and World War I. Students learn about the broad patterns of change during this time, and the significant events and emergence of economic, social and political ideas which have shaped the modern world. They further develop their ability to critically analyse, interpret and respond to historical sources in a variety of forms. 

Students are encouraged to participate in excursions which may incur a cost of approximately $15 for transport and entry fees (if applicable).
