Use the syllabus as a guide to direct learning in the chosen options outlined in your course guide/subject outline. When required source reputable websites, educational videos and textbooks/academic texts to structure student learning and encourage them to take notes in their preferred style.

Use apps such as Quizlet to create practice questions of varying types to quiz and maintain your knowledge. Access NESA past papers to practise questions for topics already covered. Students should continue to revise content already covered. Multiple choice questions can also be accessed through NESA.

Past HSC papers sometimes do not have images printed for copyright reasons but these images can be found using the google images search engine by their title to respond to the questions. These images can then be uploaded to your digital platform of choice.

Similarly, short answer and extended responses can be uploaded to a digital platform for peer or teacher feedback.
