Content in Stage 6 Life Skills syllabuses is suggested. Content describes the intended learning for students as they work towards achieving one or more syllabus outcomes. It provides the foundations for students to progress to the next stage of schooling or post-school opportunities.
Teachers will make decisions about the choice of outcomes and selection of content regarding the sequence, emphasis and any adjustments required based on the needs, strengths, goals, interests and prior learning of students.
The Science Life Skills Stage 6 Syllabus includes five courses:
- Investigating Science Life Skills
- Physical World Science Life Skills
- Earth and Space Science Life Skills
- Living World Science Life Skills
- Chemical World Science Life Skills.
The content of each of these courses is unique but the courses draw on the same outcomes to enable teaching and learning programs to be developed with a specific Science focus.
Students may undertake up to three Science Life Skills courses in both Years 11 and 12.
The Working Scientifically skills should be integrated as course content throughout the courses as appropriate.
