HIS7

History - NCEA Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Whaea L. Green

Challenge the Invaders

Throughout history, groups have invaded others groups, dominating them with their power to control and assimilate. Level 2 History explores invasions, large and small, to understand what happened in the past so that we can be part of the change for the future. 

As a class, we will explore the 1863-64 Invasion of the Waikato by the government and the resulting war between Maaori and the Government as Maaori challenged the invaders and defended their land against them. We will also explore the 1970s Dawn Raids and where the New Zealand police invaded people's homes to find people they deem to be illegally overstaying their work visas. Challenging this invasion into homes were individuals and groups such as the Polynesian Panthers. 

You will also have the opportunity to research an event of your choice in relation to our theme. 

You will develop your understanding of history through examining the perspectives, causes and effects, continuity and change, and significance of events that we study. 

History teaches you to:

  • think
  • to read and analyse information critically
  • to have an argument and support it with evidence.

History prepares you for many different careers but is particularly relevant to being a Lawyer, Researcher, Teacher, Iwi Leader, Politician, Analyst, Psychologist, Sociologist, Advocate and many more. 


Course Overview

Term 1
Challenge the Invaders - The Invasion of the Waikato
The Invasion of the Waikato by the British Troops in 1863-1864. We will be exploring this event to understand the causes that led to the Invasion in July 1863. We will then look at the actions taken by the Kiingitanga forces to challenge this invasion. Following this, we will explore the consequences of the invasion at the time through till the present day. This will allow us to understand how this event has been significant to New Zealand and our history.

Term 2
Challenge the Invaders - The Dawn Raids
1970's New Zealand police are invading people's homes to find people they deem to be illegally overstaying their work visas. Targeting primarily Pacific Island peoples, who had been encouraged to come to NZ in the year's prior, the methods and tactics used by police caused outrage and calls of racism against Pacific Island peoples in NZ. Challenging this invasion into homes were individuals and groups such as the Polynesian Panthers.
