A Reduced-Content 16+ Syllabus in Biology. A Working Paper Prepared for the Biological Education Joint Committee.
Royal Society, London (England).; Institute of Biology, London (England).
This syllabus (which is not a teaching syllabus) is intended to be an essential minimum core syllabus in biology for children of all abilities. It consists of: (1) a foreword, which outlines how the syllabus was generated; (2) an introduction, which provides information about the use of the syllabus in biology teaching (for example, the local environment should be used as a basis for the study of biology whenever possible); and (3) the syllabus. The syllabus provides the minimum core content (theory and corresponding suggested student activities) separately for below average students and for average and above average students. Major content themes considered include: the diversity of organisms; relationships between organisms and the environment; organization and maintenance of the individual; and development of organisms and the continuity of life.
