Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Kuitert

Content:
Topic: Russia: Mad Tsars and Violent Revolutionaries.

Russia is one of the largest nations on the planet geographically and by population. What makes Russia so different from other European nations? Why has it experienced so much violence? Why is it seen as a threat today? If you are interested in current events and extreme history then this course may be for you.

The Russian section of this course focuses on three units: the crazy world of the all powerful tsars; a brief survey of the Bolshevik Revolution that destroyed the monarchy and rocked the world; and the dangerous Russia of Josef Stalin, Man of Steel. These units are focused on preparing students for the end of year examination and provide the context for an internal assessment.

The fourth unit will provide an overview of NZ history from 1800 to 1840. Students will then choose from a range of 19th Century NZ topics to research for another internal assessment.

This course will develop students' skills in critical thinking, close reading and evaluating the reliability of information. It teaches formal writing skills, and as such is a valuable preparatory course for students considering tertiary education or a career choice requiring effective researching and writing skills.
