Nicola de Jager and

why did we initiate a community interaction project
Why did we initiate a Community Interaction project?
  • Thinking about democratic consolidation
  • The required value set
    • My rights, my rights………
    • Responsibilities?
  • Goal: inculcate the values of democratic citizenship in high school learners from grades 10 to 12
what did we learn
What did we learn?
  • Nicola de Jager: The scholars (and teacher) were generally very receptive. Many of them enjoyed engaging with the challenges of a democracy and contributed to the discussions.
  • What worked well was having the teacher in the class room at all times. Scholars (as happened in my last class) can try and push the boundaries with a guest speaker, and the teacher is therefore necessary if there is the need to maintain order in the class.
what did we learn1
What did we learn?
  • Ubanesia Adams-Jack:
  • Democratic government and citizenship is part of the life orientation curriculum
  • Sometimes more challenging to keep 20 in line than 200
  • The circumstances that some teachers face everyday
  • Community interaction is enjoyable but time consuming
what did we learn2
What did we learn?
  • DericaLambrechts: In my case students responded well to practical examples and also visual material. For example, I talked about the role of the media and I had two Zapirocartoons.
  • My students had to make a poster and they enjoyed the practical side more than me talking. I graded them on their posters, so if you want to do something practical, keep it structured (and formal – stipulate the ‘rules of the game’).
  • I have to mention the time factor; you have to be prepared to set aside an entire day, as the time of the periods changed on the day when I arrived at the school. It is best therefore to stay at the school and clear your schedule for that day.
the way forward
The way forward
  • Two-pronged training:
    • substantive issues (content of lecture)
    • basic lecturing skills (how to handle the groups, how to get them engaged, possible challenges).
    • We will be present with the student volunteers for at least their first lecture to guide them.
  • Add another school in 2011
