Integrated Humanities @ Lower Sec for geog & hist - Impa

Postby sporemum » Mon Nov 22, 2010 11:22 pm

I understand that some schools offer integrated humanities instead of Geog and History as separate subjects in Sec 1 and Sec 2.

Integration means they combine issues/cases and look at both Geog and Hist aspects.

Wd this mean that as compared to having separate subjects, certain topics wd be omitted and less rigour applied?

Anyone know of the impact when the kids subseq go to Sec 3 and Sec 4 when they may do SS/Geog or SS/Hist or indiv Geog/Hist? Wd the kids then suffer cos they do not have enough indepth knowldge of the individual Geog/Hist subjects?

Thanks.

In HC we still do IH, but in the form of IHC (aka social studies) and IHE, which is chosen
