History Skills for Senior NCEA builds on History Skills for NCEA Level 1. Activities explore the key additional historian's skills, including those that are ' or could be ' examined in the resource based papers, according to the relevant Achievement Standard Explanatory Notes. As well as dealing with written sources, there is guidance on how to analyse maps and graphs (and critique the statistics on which graphs are based), as per the Level 3 resource-based Standard. While this workbook covers a range of skills that are relevant to Levels 2 and 3, teachers can, as with History Skills for NCEA Level 1, 'pick and choose' what areas are most relevant to the students in their classes. Such skills include: ' identifying continuity and change ' past and present ' cause and effect/consequence (underlying, long-term, short-term and trigger) ' agency versus structure ' specific and general ' establishing significance ' close reading (including asking questions of a source), approaches to difficult vocabulary in a source ' skimming and scanning text.
History Skills for NCEA Level 1 is a workbook that will help you develop the same set of skills and tools used by historians to make sense of the past. The first of these involves finding and assessing the usefulness and reliability of information from both primary and secondary sources. The second set of skills will be those used to analyse primary sources to extract meaning, both of what there is in a source and what is missing from the source(s). It is thus as important for the historian to recognise gaps in the evidence as it is to analyse the available material. The third and final set of skills involves communicating the ideas gained from the analysis of the evidence in the form of a convincing historical argument, backed with plenty of relevant evidence. The most common form for doing this is through an essay.
This revised edition brings full colour and new units on topics such as graphs and maps, diagrams and tables, stats and key Maori history terms. Students with history skills are always in demand by those hiring in the workforce. Employers want people who know how to think and how to prepare, present and evaluate their thinking. The New Zealand Curriculum recognises that all students should have the opportunity to develop such essential skills. Developing these skills forms the background for each of the 65 units in this book. Each unit (listed under Contents) is a guide and practice for understanding, how to, knowing, recognising, and interpreting. Each unit demystifies terminology and introduces or re-introduces students to terms such as evidence, discerning, perspective, and inquiry. Each of the 65 units is a stand-alone unit but all link together to provide a tool kit of essential knowledge and skills for students at any level who will complete their work in the book by owning knowledge about values and issues, using language, managing self and engaging with the local, national and international communities.
