This program will unpack Unit 3 of the VCAA Biology Study Design. We will provide a suggested timeline for covering the key skills and concepts, as well as rich narratives to engage students in the subject matter. Applying a social constructivist lens we will showcase activities that enable students to access many of the abstract concepts in Unit 3 and allow you, the teacher, to formatively assess student progress. Study aids that help students explicitly apply skills relevant to Unit 3 and 4 will be suggested, particularly to prepare students for the practical investigation in Unit 4. Suggested Unit 3 SAC tasks will be explored and teaching resources to support the introduction of these SAC tasks in your classroom will be provided along with details for the purchase of consumables.
