VCE History 3 & 4 (Revolutions)
The study of revolutions provides an exciting opportunity to learn about major historical crisis and their effects on the societies in which they occur.  We ask the questions, what events caused these explosive social upheavals?  What factors inspired people to revolt? What impacts did their actions have on the country and the international scene?

 

In Units 3 and 4, students will study the Chinese Revolution and the Russian Revolution. (Unit 1 and 2 are not a pre-requisite for this subject.) For the two selected revolutions, both of these areas of study will be explored:

Unit 3: Revolutionary ideas, leaders, movements and events

 

Area of Study

· Analyse the cause of the revolution and evaluate the contribution of significant ideas, events, individuals and popular movements.

 

Unit 4: Creating a new society

 

Area of Study

· Analyse the consequences of the revolution and evaluate the extent of change bought to society by looking at significant ideas, events, individuals and popular movements.
