The study of the Humanities is the exploration of the human condition and experience, as they are impacted on by the geographical, environmental, political, economic, and social systems of the time and place. The understanding and application of the knowledge, skills and values across History, Geography and Social Studies will provide our students a better appreciation and understanding of their inter-connectedness to progress or hinder human development and growth over cultures, time and space.
Students will acquire knowledge about:
- Fundamental Humanities concepts, e.g. cause and consequence, change and continuity, space and place, relationships, systems and interconnections, and scarcity and choice
- Societies and their cultures and how these impact human behaviors and actions
- Key personalities and their contributions and their impact on the world and the evolution of the Singapore narrative
- How major events are related to one another in time.
Students will be able to:
- Develop the skills of historical and geographical investigations/inquiry by asking meaningful questions, planning their own process for learning and searching for answers
- Interpret a variety of primary and secondary sources, e.g. maps, statistics, documents, media and audio clips, photographs
- Critically analyse and evaluate sources and data from different perspectives so as to arrive at an informed conclusion to an issue or problem
- Present points of view or solutions confidently using appropriate platforms; and demonstrate the ability to work independently and collaboratively.
