What’s new with Jacaranda Live It Up 2 Units 3 & 4, 4th edition?


The new Jacaranda Live It Up 2 reflects all major Study Design changes in Units 3 & 4 that teachers need to be aware of:

  • Movement skills, biomechanics, instruction and stages of learning, practice strategies and feedback are now in Units 3 and 4.
  • Legal and illegal substances and methods have moved from Unit 4 to Unit 1.
  • The physiological, psychological and sociocultural perspectives of the purpose of fitness testing is new to Unit 4.
  • New technology for recording training and new training methods such as HIIT have been added to Unit 4.
  • Sociocultural factors have been added throughout Units 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Our approach to the Study Design changes

The majority of the changes in the new VCE Physical Education Study Design are straightforward and have been addressed in the new editions of the Jacaranda Live It Up series by adding in new content as required, and refreshing existing content with updates to the copy and even imagery for a fresh take on the new Study Design. However, there are significant changes in Units 1- 4 that are open to interpretation in the Study Design, and therefore, by different publishers.

Here is a snapshot of our response to these areas in the new editions:

  • Sociocultural and environmental influences on performance and participation in physical activity have been added in all Units (rather than limited to a few chapters) and these are now covered throughout the Jacaranda Live It Up series.
  • The brand new Unit 2 Area of Study 2 (Issues in physical activity and sport) is covered in detail across three full chapters in the revised Jacaranda Live It Up 1.
