Biology Module 1: Cells as the Basis of Life
Module 1 is the foundation for every other module in the Stage 6 Syllabus. Students must develop a sound understanding of the key concepts developed here and not just focus on the metalanguage.
The Stage 6 module guides for Year 11 and 12 biology are high-quality curriculum resources that highlight best practices for science teaching. They were developed in collaboration with experienced science teachers.
The module guide:
- contains contemporary ideas about teaching and learning science in high school
- emphasises scientific inquiry
- is structured around the Big Ideas of Science
- equips classroom teachers with pedagogical content knowledge for the biology course.
You may adapt the following support material to meet the individual needs of your school.
