The Competition is prepared by the History Teachers’ Association of Australia and run in conjunction with The Giant Classroom.
While a primary goal has been to provide an interesting and challenging competition for students, we also see this as an opportunity to support teachers in the implementation of the new Australian Curriculum: History.
It is an opportunity to provide a quality resource that demonstrates approaches to the assessment of knowledge, skills and understandings and promotes a broad view of history.
In 2015 the competition will be offered at two levels:
A Year 10 competition will be broadly based on the Australian Curriculum: History for years 9 and10
A Year 8 competition will be broadly based on the Australian Curriculum: History for years 7 and 8
