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 guides:

  • contain contemporary ideas about teaching and learning science in high school
  • emphasise scientific inquiry
  • are structured around the Big Ideas of Science
  • equip classroom teachers with pedagogical content knowledge for the biology course.

The following support materials may be adapted by teachers to meet the individual needs of their schools.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) have support resources including sample units and assessment schedules for the Biology Stage 6 Syllabus (2017).
