HISTORY & MODERN STUDIES

CORONAVIRUS- HISTORY AND MODERN STUDIES

Dear all,

During the school closures your teachers will continue to provide work for you to do for both History and Modern Studies at all levels. Please check your class TEAMS pages where there will be instructions on what to do and where to find the tasks for your home learning (on TEAMS or One Note). If you do not have the TEAMS app on your iPad you can access it through the Office 365 page on the school website. We will provide work for the relevant times you would have History or Modern Studies. For example, 6 blocks worth of work will be provided for Higher. 1 block of work for S2 in each subject, and so on. We wish everyone well at this time and hope you will continue to enjoy History and Modern Studies at home!
We will see you all soon.

BGE

Most pupils in S1 and S2 will be progressing through the bench marks of level 3, moving on to encounter level 4 benchmarks in S3. However, all pupils do progress at different rates. The final level achieved at the end of the BGE (S3) will help inform the pathway into National qualifications, at National 3, 4 or 5 level.  Please click on the link below which will highlight all the content and skills that need to be covered before a level can be achieved. This helps to explain why it can take quite a considerable amount of time before a level is achieved.

History – Refer to People, Past events and societies

Modern Studies – Refer to People in Society
