What are the different roles of a Life Orientation teacher? How can new techniques and mindsets help you to fulfil these roles in an effective and balanced way? What is metacognition? How can you teach learners to benefit from metacognition in their lives, learning and work? Teaching Life Orientation aims to assist student teachers to develop and build skills which will enable them to provide confident classroom instruction across the broad scope of the Life Orientation curriculum. A self-aware approach to teaching and learning is modelled through the three characters of the Brain Buddy: Mentor, Companion and Coach. Teaching Life Orientation is interactive and focusses on the practical application of the CAPS curriculum for the Senior and FET Phases. This book is suitable for in-service teachers studying for an Advanced Certificate in Education (ACE) or an Advanced Diploma in Education (ADE) as well as a B.Ed qualification.
