Let’s Talk has been developed out of a pilot project conducted in KwaZulu-Natal schools. It focuses on a dialogue approach to managing and preventing sexual harassment and learner pregnancy in schools. The project aimed to support teachers with strategies for coping with the challenges of sexual harassment in schools so that they are able to fulfil their professional roles and responsibilities. The programme was implemented by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education (KZNDoE) Gender Desk in partnership with MIET AFRICA and underpinned by action research conducted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s School of Education.
In addition to the above booklet, the material also includes six posters targeting teachers, learners and caregivers.
This is a guide for isiZulu Foundation Phase teachers to help them understand the Reading and Phonics part of the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement for Grades R-3 (CAPS).
The easy-to-read booklet promotes reading as a fun activity, and it includes examples of exercises that teachers can use when teaching literacy to young learners. It also explains the important differences between teaching reading in isiZulu and teaching reading in English. Understanding these differences makes the teaching of reading easier.
The booklet is written in English, although it is aimed primarily at Foundation Phase teachers of isiZulu Home Language. (It was written in English because teachers themselves say they find it easier to read this kind of information in English.) But it can also be used by teachers of English Home Language or English First Additional Language.
