4 . INTRODUCTION This syllabus describes the intended learning for Life Skills for the Senior Secondary Phase. As a subject, Life Skills is within the spiritual and ethical domain of learning in the curriculum, and has thematic links to other subjects across the curriculum. Under optimal circumstances, this subject needs period per cycle to be taught comprehensively.. RATIONALE Life Skills as a subject is a way of making meaning out of life. The basic aims of the Life Skills programme are to focus on the optimal, holistic development of all learners. While it is realised that the development of learners will continue, it is expected that on completion of the Life Skills programme in Grade students should: have a clear idea of their identity apply knowledge in decision-making be able to function effectively be socially responsible be able to apply effective study skills be able to make a realistic career choice The Life Skills curriculum is based on the concept of a holistic education, the philosophy of which is that education should: emphasise daily living, personal-social and occupational skills development provide a unified approach to education for life encourage all members of the school community to have a shared responsibility and a mutual co-operative relationship among the various subjects include learning in the home, private and public institutions, the employment community as well as the school include basic education, citizenship, family responsibility and other important educational objectives provide for career awareness, orientation, exploration and skills development through selfawareness and a positive self-esteem provide a balance of content, experiential learning and hands-on activities encourage open communication between learners, teachers, parents/providers and the community. 3. COMPETENCIES AND LEARNING OUTCOMES On completion of the Life Skills Programme each learner is expected to have: a. developed optimally and holistically as an individual b. acquired the knowledge, skills and understanding needed by individuals to manage their environment c. developed daily living skills, personal-social and occupational skills d. developed critical thinking, problem-solving skills, individual initiative, interpersonal and enquiring skills e. acquired knowledge and understanding of society, appreciation of their culture including languages, traditions, songs, ceremonies, customs, social norms and a sense of citizenship f. acquired knowledge of, and be exposed to practise moral standards and health practices that will prepare them for responsible family and community life g. acquired the ability to relate subject matter to career choices h. gained the necessary knowledge and skills to interact with, and learn about their community, the government of their country and the world around them. LEARNING OUTCOMES On completion of the curriculum, all learners are expected to develop skills to cope with everyday life and be able to make responsible career choices.

5 4. PARTICULAR FEATURES OF THE SUBJECT Life Skills consists of three domains, namely Career Guidance, Daily Living Skills and Personal Social Skills. In this syllabus Career Guidance focuses on study skills, career opportunities, work ethics and job seeking. Daily Living Skills focuses on health care, family life and finances. Personal Social Skills focuses on self-awareness, relationships and citizenship. 5. GENDER ISSUES In working with every theme, issues should be seen from both the male and female points of view. Males and females tend to have different ways of thinking about ethical problems and each other's thinking should be enriched by sharing perspectives in class. 6. LOCAL CONTEXT AND CONTENT Examples and issues should be taken from the learners' immediate community and environment. In general it is important to embrace the African context in Namibia. Everyday issues and problems should be used in the lessons. 7. LINKS TO OTHER SUBJECTS AND CROSS-CURRICULAR ISSUES Life skills appeals to the learner as a holistic person, and the subject plays an integrating role at each phase of development. Life Skills contributes to the learner s self-image and promotes values such as co-operation, tolerance and respect for others culture and possessions. It also allows for new ways of understanding the crucial importance of sustaining our environment and shows the interdependence of environmental sustainability and political, moral, social and economic demands through a study of the cross-curricular issues listed below. The main cross-curricular issues are integrated throughout the curriculum in all phases and comprise a. HIV and AIDS b. Human Rights and Democracy c. Population Education d. Information Technology These are anchored in the various subject syllabuses. Languages will enable learners to express their attitudes, perceptions and feelings and develop strong communication skills, which will be strengthened in this phase. Content addressing these issues should be used in the following ways: e. Drama f. Role-plays g. Group discussions h. Designing of posters i. Research j. Creative cultural tasks, e.g. dances, story-telling, etc.

6 The cross-curricular table gives ideas about how the teacher can integrate issues in Life Skills. CROSS-CURRICULAR TABLE GRADES - What follows below are examples only and are intended to guide teachers towards integrating these cross-curricular topics in Life Skills teaching. Most of these issues are not standing on their own but are integrated. Teachers may add their own topics and activities or adapt these depending on the level and interests of their class groups. HIV and AIDS Grade HIV status in the workplace Population Education Grade Parenthood Human Rights and Democracy Education Grade Cross-cultural issues Information and Communication Technology Grade Internet chat rooms Pornography Grade Family responsibility towards orphans Grade Homosexuality Cross-cultural marriages Grade Corruption and nepotism Workers rights and responsibilities Grade Research on careers 8. APPROACH TO TEACHING AND LEARNING The approach to teaching and learning is based on a paradigm of interactive learner-centred education described in Ministerial policy documents and curriculum guides. This approach ensures optimal quality of learning. The aim is to develop skills, attitudes and learning with understanding. The starting point for teaching and learning is the fact that the learner brings to school a wealth of knowledge and social experiences gained continually from the family, the community and through interaction with the environment. Learning in school must involve, build on, extend and challenge the learner's prior knowledge and experience. Learners learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process. At the same time, each learner is an individual with his/her own needs, pace of learning, experiences and abilities. The teacher must be able to sense the needs of the learners, the nature of the learning to be done and how to shape learning experiences accordingly. Teaching strategies must therefore be varied but flexible within well-structured sequences of lessons. The teacher must decide, in relation to the learning objectives and competencies to be achieved: a. when it is best to convey content directly b. when it is best to let learners discover or explore information for themselves c. when they need directed learning d. when they need reinforcement or enrichment learning e. when there is a particular progression of skills or information that needs to be followed f. or when the learners can be allowed to find their own ways through a topic or area of content. Work in groups, in pairs, individually, or as a whole class must therefore be organised as appropriate to the task on hand. Co-operative and collaborative learning should be encouraged wherever possible. Tasks must be designed through pair or group work. This will enable learners to see the value of co-operation. As the learners develop personal, social and communication skills, they can gradually be given increasing responsibility to participate in planning and evaluating their work, under the teacher's guidance. 3

7 Teachers are allowed to select approaches or use their own approaches to achieve the basic competencies. Teachers are also invited to make contributions to NIED on highly successful approaches and/or activities. Suggested activities for continuous assessment (Activities should be adapted for learners with special needs): Group work display on a bulletin board poster collect pictures tableau research case studies project work Performing art task dramatise songs role-play mime dance Creative tasks display on a bulletin board design/make a poster draw pictures Cultural expression tasks videos story-telling tableau debate present dramatise songs role-play Written tasks map worksheets paragraph essay research tabling articles list define in own words case studies project work 4

21 . ASSESSMENT. Introductory remarks In the Senior Secondary Phase, assessment will consist of informal and formal continuous assessment.. Purpose of assessment In learner-centred education, assessing the progress and achievements of each learner continuously is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. The main purpose of assessment is to get a reliable picture of the progress of the learner. Information to the learner The information gathered about the learners' progress and achievements should be used to give feedback to the learners about their strong and weak points. Information to the parents The parents should be regularly informed about the progress of their child and be encouraged to reward achievements. Evaluating the teaching/learning process The teacher can evaluate the teaching and learning process in terms of relevance of content, learner participation, appropriate methods of teaching, optimal use of group work, individual work, etc..3 Types of Assessment Formative assessment Assessment of this type is formative because the observations made and information collected are used both to guide the learner and to help shape and direct the teaching-learning process. Assessment has a formative role for learners if and when: - it motivates them to extend their knowledge and skills, and establish sound values - it promotes healthy habits of study - assessment tasks help learners to solve problems intelligently by using what they have learned - the teacher uses the information to improve teaching methods and learning materials. Continuous assessment Continuous assessment should be kept as simple as possible. Marks given for various activities can be recorded for continuous assessment. In order not to take to much teaching time with assessment, not less than two assessments per term should be done. In Grade each learner should have six assessment marks per year. Grade learners will only be assessed during the first and second term for continuous assessment marks. Life Skills will still be presented during the third term. The Portfolio should only be assessed at the end of each year. The portfolio should contain all visible activities and written work done throughout the year. A portfolio (could be an exercise book, file, envelope or anything containing a learners visible work) for each learner should be developed for each phase. The portfolios should be available at all times to portrait learners development. The portfolio is intended to provide evidence of personal growth. Other assessments can be spread over the year. Learners can be assessed on different topics on the same task throughout the year, e.g. Learner A can be assessed in Term One on Group Work and a Creative Task while Learner B can be assessed in Term One on Written Tasks and Performing Tasks. 8

22 .4 Methods of assessment Assessment should be related to the objectives of each topic. Assessment tasks should be adapted for learners with Special Educational Needs. In Life Skills Tasks, there are no right and wrong answers. Consult Rubric for applicable assessment indicators. Informal methods The teacher should assess how well each learner masters the basic competencies described in the subject syllabus and from this gain a picture of the all-round progress of the learner. This can be done through observation of each learner's learning progress while they are investigating, interpreting and applying information, communicating, making value judgements and in respect of their general participation. Formal methods Formal continuous assessment consists of tasks and activities that have been designed for the specific purpose of assessing certain competencies. The aim is to carry out the assessment in a valid way using materials that have been designed for the purpose. The results of learners performance on assessment tasks are recorded. Performance in projects and tasks will be selected, graded and recorded. Recording grades The grades obtained by learners through continuous assessment must be systematically recorded throughout the year, and used to inform the learner and parents on personal and occupational development. It should serve as a guide for teachers to do compensatory teaching and for Counselling Support Groups to address individual life challenges..5 Assessment objectives The assessment objectives in Life Skills are: A: To participate Participation should be by spontaneous contribution of ideas and suggestions, without the fear of being judged or labelled. B: To demonstrate self-confidence C: To demonstrate self-discipline Self-discipline should be demonstrated through acting responsibly, being obedient, being in control of emotions and by completing tasks diligently D: To listen and respond Listen and respond sensitively to peer questions, suggestions and criticism E: To demonstrate creativity F: To express oneself clearly G: To use problem-solving skills H: To apply skills in decision-making I: To display goal-seeking behaviour J: To display self-knowledge 9

23 .6 Grade description The grading scale shows the learner s level of achievement in relation to the Basic Competencies as explained in assessment objectives. The 7-point scale (A G) covers a wide ability range, using letters A to G where A is the highest and G the lowest grade. Learners scoring below a G grade, i.e. 0 9% will be un-graded. GRADES GRADE INTERVALS (%) A B C D E F G 0 9 U 0-9 GRADE DESCRIPTIONS Achieved Basic Competencies exceptionally well Achieved Basic Competencies very well Achieved Basic Competencies well Achieved Basic Competencies satisfactorily Achieved a sufficient number of Basic Competencies to exceed the minimum competency level Achieved the minimum number of Basic Competencies to be considered competent Achieved the minimum number of Basic Competencies worthy of a grade Un-graded 0
