2. Department Programmes

Department Signature Programmes:

Historical Investigations (HI) and Geographical Investigations (GI)

Objectives of the Programme:

Historical Investigations (HI) and Geographical Investigations (GI) employ inquiry as a pedagogical tool where students work in groups to investigate historical and geographical issues. Students examine and understand the HI and GI question, gather, select, and examine sources, construct their responses as well as communicate their findings. The programme helps students to be exposed to real world context in the learning of Humanities, and allows them to develop their interpersonal skills and teamwork.

Implementation Process:

The investigation goes through the inquiry process and it starts with the students answering a series of guiding historical or geographical questions. This is followed by gathering historical and geographical data. For this purpose, learning journeys are organised for the lower secondary students to Changi Chapel Museum, Bishan Park, Bishan North Community, East Coast Park and Chinatown. After gathering data, students will return to the classroom to interpret and evaluate their data, and construct explanations to answer their guiding questions. Finally the inquiry process closes with each group presenting their findings and conclusions to the rest of the class. Students also reflect on the entire process to consolidate their learning.

Benefits to Students:

Both HI and GI give students opportunities to appreciate the real world application of historical and geographical knowledge and skills as well as help them acquire 21CC skills. Given that lower secondary students are new to the study of these two subjects, students will follow a guided inquiry approach. Teachers will provide guidance to enable students to learn about the inquiry process and be familiar with the expectations of their performance.
