              "Big World, Small Country is a ... textbook, aimed at NCEA Level 1 and 2, that focuses on the major political, military, economic and social events of the 20th century. The book begins with a timeline of the 20th century and a 'status report' as at the year 1900, in order to prov...ide an overarching context for what follows. Subsequent chapters cover the major developments in the 20th century, in which New Zealanders were involved or which, due to their global significance, had an impact on New Zealand, even if indirectly. Where New Zealanders were involved in global events, their observations and experiences are included. Big World, Small Country provides rich grounds for discussion, along with activities that explore and develop content understanding, key ideas, predictive reading, values, perspectives and historical empathy. Anecdotes, such as the fact that New Zealand boxer Clarrie Gordon was perhaps the only person to have punched Hitler and survived, help bring history alive. Students are also challenged to consider the reliability and usefulness of sources, including the textbook itself"--Back cover.

              History Skills for NCEA Level 1 is a workbook that will help you develop the same set of skills and tools used by historians to make sense of the past. The first of these involves finding and assessing the usefulness and reliability of information from both primary and secondary ...sources. The second set of skills will be those used to analyse primary sources to extract meaning, both of what there is in a source and what is missing from the source(s). It is thus as important for the historian to recognise gaps in the evidence as it is to analyse the available material. The third and final set of skills involves communicating the ideas gained from the analysis of the evidence in the form of a convincing historical argument, backed with plenty of relevant evidence. The most common form for doing this is through an essay.
