ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC INTEGRATED SCIENCE

ELSD RECOMMENDED RESOURCES FOR CSEC INTEGRATED SCIENCE

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

 

The Organism and Its Environment

The Home and Workplace

Earth’s Place in the Universe

 

The syllabus generally aims to:

  • Develop scientifically and technologically literate students who will engage in public discussions on issues related to these fields
  • Use scientific knowledge and principles in everyday life situations
  • Increase awareness of the importance of living in harmony with the environment and appreciate the need to preserve the natural environment
  • Design and evaluate scientific inquiry
  • Interpret data and evidence scientifically
  • Develop critical thinking, problem-solving and collaborative skills
  • Develop competencies that will enable students to make appropriate decisions regarding health, safety and other everyday life problems; and,
  • Integrate information, communication and technological tools and skills

 

NOTE: Greater emphasis is placed on the integration and application of scientific concepts and principles so as to expose students to the long-term transferrable skills of ethical conduct, team work, problem solving, critical thinking, innovation and communication. Students will attain positive values and attitudes useful for daily living as learning brings together the everyday context in which science operates. On completion of this program, the student will therefore have a sturdy foundation for pursuance of further studies in science.
