History at Deptford Green School

Course description

All GCSE specifications in history should encourage learners to be inspired, moved and changed by following a broad, coherent, satisfying and worthwhile course of study. All GCSE specifications in history must enable learners to: actively engage in the process of historical enquiry to develop as effective and independent learners, and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds; develop their knowledge and coherent understanding of selected periods, societies and aspects of history; develop an awareness of how the past has been represented, interpreted and accorded significance for different reasons and purposes; develop the ability to ask relevant questions about the past and to investigate them critically using a range of sources in their historical context; organise and communicate their historical knowledge and understanding in creative and different ways and reach substantiated judgements; recognise that their historical knowledge, understanding and skills help them understand the present and also provide them with a basis for their role as responsible citizens, as well as for the possible further study of history. The WJEC specification in History provides an opportunity to consider relevant key events, people, changes and issues in the periods or topics studied. Candidates will also consider the social, cultural, religious and ethnic diversity of the societies studied and the experiences of men and women in these societies. Candidates will also approach the study of history from a variety of perspectives, for example political, economic, social, technological, scientific, religious and cultural.
