ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC HUMAN & SOCIAL BIOLOGY

ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC HUMAN & SOCIAL BIOLOGY

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

 

Living Organisms and the Environment

Life Processes

Heredity and Variation

Disease and its Impact on Humans

The impact of Health Practices on the Environment

 

The general aims of the syllabus are to:

  • Develop an understanding of the structure and functioning of the human body
  • Increase awareness about the interdependence of living things as they live in harmony with the environment
  • Develop competencies that will enable students to adopt healthy lifestyles
  • Develop experimental and data interpretation skills
  • Increase awareness of technological advances
  • Provide a foundation for further study or specialised training in fields of relevance such as, nursing, physiotherapy or dietetics, which require an understanding of the structure and functioning of the human body and the application of biological principles to the maintenance of health and healthy living.

 

NOTE: On completion of this course, the student would have attained intricate knowledge of the structure and functioning of the human body as well as knowledge of the application of biological principles, skills, and technological advances, to the maintenance of health and the problems of living together. Additionally, the student will learn that human beings have a responsibility to their environment and, as such, have an obligation to conserve, protect, maintain and improve its quality.
