In this unit, we explore the matters of concern relating to Topic 2: Climate change, environment and social responsibility. In this topic, we will explore different sub-topic matters of concern and how to apply the curriculum-activated Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) process. The goal is to apply an iterative solution-orientated learning-led change approach to engage with climate change in your Life Orientation class so that the learners feel part of the solution and take up climate change as part of their world within their communities. Tables 1 and 2 list the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements for Topic 2, including the outline of the sub-topics for Senior and FET phases.
The course aims to support you as a teacher, teacher educator, student or interested reader to
- Strengthen your subject content knowledge of climate change
- Enhance your teaching practices
- Support your assessment practices
