History

Curriculum Aims

The aims of the History curriculum are to enable students to:

  1. discover where they stand in the contemporary world through understanding the origins and development of modern events;
  2. develop the skills of critical thinking, making sound judgments and effective communication through exploring historical issues;
  3. approach past and current events in an impartial and empathetic manner, using a variety of perspectives;
  4. understand the characteristics and values of their own culture, and appreciate the shared humanity and common problems of the world’s many peoples;
  5. cultivate both national consciousness and the consciousness of being citizens of the global community, and thus become rational and sensible members of the local community, the nation and the world.

Curriculum Objectives

Students are expected to master skills which will enable them to:

  1. distinguish fact from opinion; detect biased viewpoints, ambiguous assumptions and unsubstantiated arguments; and build up proper historical perspectives;
  2. compare and interpret historical data; arrive at reasoned conclusions based on available evidence; and recognise the fact that history is subject to reassessment based on the interpretation of new evidence;
  3. present logical and coherent arguments through the proper selection and organisation of historical data;
  4. search for, select, analyse and synthesise information through various means, including the Internet, and consider various ways of arriving at conclusions and making appraisals.
