Dear Student

1.CHANGE OF QUESTION IN ASSIGNMENT 02

As you probably know Unisa only revises its curriculum every 3 years. The school curriculum has however changed to CAPS and we need to adapt some of our materials to this change. Question 6 requires you to do a lesson plan. In the tutorial letter 101 the format required is still based on the old C2005 curriculum (outcomes based). We therefore would like you to replace question 6 in tutorial letter 101 with the content provided below:

Question 6

The purpose of this question is to help you master the skill of preparing a lesson for your subject in which you integrate Environmental Education.

Design a lesson where you indicate how an environmental theme can be taught in your subject. The following should receive attention:

oIndicate the environmental topic (eg pollution, global warming, acid mine water, desertification, deforestation, overuse of resources such as overfishing, etc)

o Indicate the lesson aims (identify the relevant environmental skills, knowledge, attitudes and values to be addressed by the lesson)

o Indicate the environmental content you will use to present the lesson.

o Include learning activities for introduction, middle and conclusion of lesson. o Include teacher activities for introduction, middle and conclusion of lesson.

oIntegrate at least two Tblisi principles in your lesson (how can two Tblisi principles be used in the school context).

o Indicate the values you would like learners to accept (eg care for the environment, action on behalf of the environment, etc).

oIndicate the environmental concepts you would like learners to understand and indicate how you will go about teaching the concepts (eg biodiversity, environment, etc).

oIndicate the skills learners should master (eg learners must be able to make compost or start a food garden or recycle paper, etc).

oReflect on how successful you were in integrating Environmental education in your lesson.
