Modern History Syllabus
The historical investigation is designed to provide opportunities for all students to further
develop relevant investigative, research and presentation skills that are the core of the
historical inquiry process. The outcomes addressed in the investigation build on those in the
Years 7–10 History syllabus. Modern History students will access the Preliminary Stage 6
outcomes at different levels depending on their previous experiences and abilities. The
investigation also provides the context for a practical application of the key competencies
described on page 13.
