The focus of SPH 415 is to build the confidence of prospective Life Skills teachers so that they are able to attend to needs, values, beliefs and responsibilities empowering learners to make informed decisions and to use characteristics that have been identified through research to bring about positive behaviour change and management. Student-teachers develop sound teaching practice skills (micro-teaching), curriculum differentiation, content and teaching plans (CAPS) and appropriate informal, formal assessment of content as well as recording, reporting and moderation of assessment. Student teachers are expected to create and gather age-appropriate resource materials as part of their final assessment in this course.
