Adding Film to the Biology Syllabus

While many high school science programs “teach to the test,” placing their focus on preparation for standardized exams, we propose a multi-disciplinary approach to education with a list of films to accompany biology curricula. These videos have been selected with key lessons in mind, addressing topics such as evolution, biodiversity, molecular growth and reproduction, dynamic homeostasis, information retrieval, transmission and response in living systems, and biological system interaction. The package includes lab footage, narratives, documentaries and experimental films, offering a range of entry-points for young learners to engage with the study of biology and develop critical thinking skills.
