Teaching and learning resources for the South African curriculum
Chances are, if you’re a teacher the word CAPS now has a completely new meaning and may have left you with lots of questions.
CAPS – The Department of Basic Education’s new Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements will be introduced in schools from 2012 for Grade 1-3) and Grade 10 teachers. These new policy statements have introduced brand new content and teaching methods for many subjects with detailed year plans, so that teachers know what to teach and when to teach it.
At Maskew Miller Longman we believe that the best way to support teachers is by ensuring that they are well-equipped to deliver this revised curriculum successfully. This is why we’ve chosen to provide free teacher training workshops throughout South Africa. The workshops, facilitated by subject experts, cover the content changes for the curriculum and provide teachers with practical examples that they can use in the classroom.
"I really enjoyed what you shared with us today." Teacher feedback: North West Province workshops
Maskew Miller Longman has worked really hard to ensure that at the end of the workshops teachers understand the new requirements and are confident about teaching the new content.
"Across the board (all seven different learning areas), educators were unanimous in their appreciation for the workshop sessions. Presenters benefited as much from conducting the workshops as the educators did from participating in the workshops. It was heartwarming to see Subject Advisors attending the workshops with their teachers."
