History Revision Semester II
Content – events, people, places, dates, political crisis, international events and/or influences, experiences of groups. Skills – essay writing, being able to dissect the given essay or document study question and figure out what information is needed to answer the question, to answer the question thoroughly by using content (events, people, places) as evidence to back up what you are saying. Identity – the way others perceive a person, nation or group – questions relating to identity are usually to do with the changes of that identity - change of attitudes, changes within society over the period or different groups within the society – chronological Understandings – Curriculum Council information – this is where all the questions come from. The people that create the TEE use the words directly from the understandings and the dot points underneath the understandings.
