Afternoon component of the program

Navigating Unit 4 AOS 2 & 3

This program will unpack Unit 4 of the 2017 – 2021 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 4 and allow you, the teacher, to formatively assess student progress. Suggested Unit 4 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. Approaches to running the practical investigation for AOS3 will be provided along with study aids to assist students to produce a scientific poster.
