ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC BIOLOGY

ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC BIOLOGY

These recommended free e-resources are specifically aligned with the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) curriculum framework as suggested in the CSEC Biology Syllabus. Resources are provided under each of the three major topics of study and associated sub-topics as recommended by CXC:

 

Living Organisms

Life Processes and Disease

  • Cells
  • Nutrition
  • Respiration
  • Transport
  • Excretion
  • Movement
  • Irritability
  • Growth
  • Reproduction
  • Disease

Continuity and Variation

 

NOTE: Such studies will assist in contributing to the development of the Ideal Caribbean Person as articulated by the CARICOM Heads of Government in the following areas: respect for human life and awareness of the importance of living in harmony with the environment; demonstrates multiple literacies; independent and critical thinking and the innovative application of science and technology to problem solving. In keeping with the UNESCO Pillars of Learning, this course of study will assist students in learning how to do, how to live together and how to transform themselves and society
