History
By appraising them of the past, will enable them to judge the future; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men.
Thomas Jefferson

At Alice Smith our focus is on developing the skills of a critical learner, not just to merely memorise names and dates.

From the very beginning of Year 7, students take a enquiry-based approach to learning about; bias and exaggeration, truth and reliability, generalism and stereotype. They develop and improve abilities in researching, writing, presenting, debating, and above all critical thinking. 

The key goal for our History teachers is to equip students to explore their own themes and lines of enquiry, contesting the views of some of the most well-known historians. The critical learner bases their responses upon personal understandings and their wider cultural background; be it how to storm a castle or identifying the most significant factor that impacted upon the development of China in the 20th century?

History at Alice Smith covers a wide variety of subject knowledge, including the histories of Continental Europe, Asia, North America and the British Isles.  

Students participate in a variety of learning approaches, in small and large groups, as well as individually. They utilise web based research, as well as the latest literature and resources in our ever expanding library.
