Humanities

The Humanities provide a framework for students at Tallangatta Secondary College to examine the processes that have shaped the modern world and to investigate responses to different challenges.

In Civics and Citizenship (CV) students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to question, understand and contribute to the world in which they live.

Economics and Business units (BE) develop the knowledge, understanding and skills that will inform and encourage them to participate in, and contribute to, the economy.

Geography classes (GE) involve being critical and creative when conducting fieldwork, mapping, using spatial technologies and presenting solutions to problems.

History curriculum (HI) encourages the transferable skills of critical and creative thinking, such as the ability to explore questions, imagine possibilities and construct arguments.

At our College, students start their Humanities learning in the Year 7 transition program, where they undertake a compulsory integrated English/Humanities unit called Culture and Communication. Students then move to the Middle School and undertake Level 1, 2 and 3 units before entering VCE.

At Level 1, Semester One units focus on History and Geography. Semester Two units align to Economics/Business and Civics and Citizenship.

At Level 2, Semester One and Two, units offered are from all areas of the Humanities. This provides opportunities for students in year 9 and 10 to explore the pathways into senior school.

The Vertical Modular Grouping allows students to apply for advancement to Level 2 or VCE units.

Our Humanities Curriculum meets the requirements of the Victorian Curriculum and will look like: 2020 Humanities Curriculum Handout
