Modern History | Unit 2: Home



In Unit 2, students form their own knowledge and understanding about movements that have emerged in the Modern World. The movements examined include actions or activities on a local, national or international level that are directed towards a particular social purpose. Often the social purpose has been to make the world more inclusive, liberal, equitable, egalitarian or accessible through the removal of discrimination and exploitation based on some form of prejudice, e.g. ableism, anti-Semitism, classism, homophobia, Islamophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia or xenophobia.
