Course description

The History A Level Distance Learning Course will help students to develop an interest in and an enthusiasm for history and an understanding of its intrinsic value and significance. The course will build on the understanding of the past taught at GCSE level through a balanced course of study.

The course is designed for full AQA A Level 7041/7042 specification and a separate course is available for AS Level should students prefer that option.

This course is divided into the following units:

  1. Introductory Module: How to Study History at A-level (What is History & How to Find and Use Historical Sources)
  2. Challenge and Transformation: Britain, c18511964
    Victorian and Edwardian Britain, c18511914
  3. The American Dream: Reality and Illusion, 19451980
    Prosperity, Inequality and Superpower status, 19451963

  5. Challenges to the American Dream, 19631980
  6. Coursework Module: Progress towards Democracy and Extension of the Franchise in Britain, 1780-1884
Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study. Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self- assessment questions. There are nineteen Tutor-Marked Assignments (known as TMAs).   On completion of their study students would arrange examinations with a local exam centre as a private candidate.
