This project aims to improve reading skills of Grade 9 learners and to encourage Grade 9 learners to select Maths as an FET subject.
The project takes the form of a novel centred on a group of friends who are Grade 9 learners. The novel covers key Life Orientation themes as they appear in the CAPS curriculum. In addition to the novel, relevant lesson plans are provided to guide teachers to deal with selected themes.
The CAPS curriculum for Grade 9 Life Orientation has been analysed and unpacked.
A framework for the novel has been constructed and approved.
Field research has been conducted to test the appropriateness of content and language with Grade 9 learners.
