History is all about people.
History looks at why people fall out, and the consequences. It considers who were the peacemakers. How did our world get to where it is?
Like detectives, we use clues or evidence from the past to try and find the answers. Then we try and piece together these clues to reach a judgement. Along the way we have to use our analytical skills to spot bias and propaganda.
