Analysing the French Revolution

The disruption to the school year due to COVID-19 has resulted in changes to some of the VCE Study Designs. Please see our Analysing the French Revolution author, Michael Adcock's response to the changes below and check back for other titles in this series.


You will be aware the VCAA has responded to the current medical emergency by lightening the amount of assessable material in VCE 3-4 History -Revolutions.

In the case of the French Revolution (Area of Study 2), the VCAA has eliminated, for 2020 only, the whole section relating to the experiences and responses of different social groups.

In the case of Analysing the French Revolution​, this means that teachers may choose not to make use of Chapter 18, 'Popular Movements: The Role of Women in the French Revolution', in 2020 only.
