This subject will develop students' understanding of Australian history during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Through a selection of key historical periods, events and individuals, students will analyse, discuss and form conclusions on how elements of Australian society instigated, influenced and enacted change in politics, social attitudes and behaviour. Students will investigate and interpret history where selected moments and causes evoked different voices towards activism and change including Indigenous Australians, gender groups, the family, workers, youth and the counter-generations, and immigrants. Students will learn how contemporary historians and revisionist history accounts have interpreted key moments and individuals; how the contexts and events of former times are viewed and interpreted today; and in what ways such views may alter, and why, into the future.
