A Level History

Course Information

As a history student, you will never experience the events that you study; instead you have to build up a picture from the evidence that has been left. You have to become skilled at asking questions, sometimes awkward ones; and not to take everything at face value.

You have to develop empathy and understanding of the actions and achievements of others; you have to be prepared to put your case and argue it well; you have to use evidence to draw conclusions and make judgements.

 

Course Content

Modules Include:

  • The Making of a Superpower: The USA 1856 – 1979
  • The Making of Modern Britain: 1951 – 2007
