The project is an important part of the Life Orientation Grade 7 Term 3 curriculum, and students will have the opportunity to contribute to the project and join in the discussions. This is a great opportunity to learn more about substance abuse and make a positive contribution to society. Substance abuse is a growing problem among teens and can have serious and long-lasting effects. The Life Orientation Grade 7 Term 3 project is focused on raising awareness of substance abuse and helping students to identify the signs and symptoms of such abuse.
At the start of the project, students will receive an introductory memorandum outlining the rationale for the project, the topics to be discussed, and the assessment criteria. The memorandum stresses the importance of thorough research to provide a factual and well-rounded understanding of the subject matter. The memorandum also encourages team-based learning to promote collaboration and discussion among peers.
The topics to be discussed within the project include the types of substances abused, the signs and symptoms of abuse, and the negative impacts of substance abuse. Students will also consider how to help those struggling with substance abuse. Through research, discussions, and understanding, the project aims to develop a keen awareness of the complex and wide-reaching implications of substance abuse.
Throughout the project, assessment will be based on the level of knowledge, research conducted, presentations, and reflective work. It is expected that students will engage in meaningful discussion regarding the implications of substance abuse, and that each member of the team will actively take part in the project.
This is a valuable and eye-opening learning experience for all students, as it reinforces the importance of sound research and understanding and promotes collaboration and communication skills. We hope that all students engage with the project with enthusiasm and in a thoughtful and responsible manner.
