Abstract: The teaching of Year 11 and 12 History in Fijian high schools underwent major changes between 2009 and 2015 with the revision of an imported History curriculum and the creation of four new History textbooks. This was part of a broader aim to decolonise an outdated high school curriculum that was introduced by New Zealand in late 1960s. This thesis focuses on the collaborative group responsible for writing the new textbooks and uses a critical reflection methodology to consider the strengths and weaknesses of the writing process and the materials that were produced.
