OUR HSC PROGRAM HAS BEEN RUNNING FOR 24 YEARS AND THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS HAVE ATTENDED OUR STUDY DAYS.
In 2020 alone thousands of students participated in our ZOOMED study days livestreamed to schools in Sydney and right across NSW>
NOW HSC STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE STATE CAN HAVE ACCESS TO OUR QUALITY PRESENTATIONS.
Our presentations are not taught as shallow 'exam crams' but rather as discussions of the historical and archaeological issues that make ancient history so exciting to study. This is where the HSC advantage lies because these study days and Webinars challenge students to think outside the square.
The emphasis is on the development of CRITICAL THOUGHT: higher order thinking skills such as interpretation, evaluation and the construction of a synthesis composed of disparate information.
Students are taught by specialist archaeologists and historians who have a sound knowledge of the recent research and the most up-to-date interpretations. All presenters understand well the requirements of the HSC examination and many of them have also taught in schools and marked HSC examination papers.
