Level 3 Antisemitism from Origins to Auschwitz (SOS301)

SOS301
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Peszynski

This Social Studies course has a history focus where students complete a broad study of the development of antisemitism over time together with a special study of the causes and consequences of the Shoah (Holocaust).  

Students will engage with primary sources, and historical debate to develop informed, evidence based arguments, and be exposed to what hatred can do to individuals and societies.   The lessons learned can be applied to the 21st century where the need for toleration and understanding in a diverse world are essential. 

Students will also have the opportunity to pursue their own interests in by completing research into a self selected historical event or movement with a local history focus.  A need to better understand our own history is central to creating a tolerant and informed 21st century New Zealand. 

Students are offered 20 credits from the History subject area in this University Entrance approved course.  During the course of the year student may wish to opt out of one assessment.  This will be decided in conjunction with the student, parents and teacher.

High achieving students have the opportunity to attempt Scholarship History which will involve additional study during lunchtimes on a theme yet to be determined by NZQA. 

NOTE: SOS232 Special Studies cannot be taken in conjunction with this course.
