What are teachers saying about the Key Concepts in VCE Health and Human Development series?
“We feel that Jacaranda has the most up to date and relevant information for our students. The case studies and exam prep questions are fantastic in engaging the students whilst also providing them with similar questions that they would face in a SAC or end of year examination. We are very happy with the resource and will continue using Jacaranda for the foreseeable future.”
Head of Department, Catholic Regional College
“I find the content reliable, sequentially organised and it effectively targets students at all levels through the mixed activities provided. It is also reassuring to see the content being produced by reputable authors. Cannot thank you enough for all of the hard work everybody puts into the production of this fantastic resource.”
Teacher, Beaconhills College
“It is an accessible [resource] and provides clear explanations and activities that are pertinent and relevant to the curriculum.”
“We have used Jacaranda over a number of years and we will continue to because the resources are clear and cover all aspects of the curriculum. When support is required, the staff at Jacaranda are easy to deal with and sort the issue immediately.”
Lilydale Heights Secondary College
“Your resources are terrific and having a new study design I feel confident that your writers and the material meet the VCAA requirements- this so important when teaching in VCE as knowing what has to be taught and the key knowledge/skills being broken down for us is valuable in terms of time and support. Many thanks!”
Teacher, Mt. Eliza Secondary College
“Jacaranda has been a really useful resource in 2018. I have utilised the textbook, digital copies and also the teacher kit (student kit) with great effect. I would recommend that other schools incorporate the online resources ASAP!”
Teacher, Ringwood Secondary College
“I find the Jacaranda textbooks very appealing to the eye. Not only does it have a lot of information, but also plenty of graphs, figures, tables and relevant images. I also find the Jacaranda textbooks cater for all learning styles of my students. Activities are included for hands on students, graphs, images and colour for the visual learners and the auditory learners can listen to students read, or watch and listen to the included videos.”
