Life orientation

Grade 8

Social development and career orientation

Module 28

Kinds of careers and the nature of the work

Activity 8:

To form an idea of different kinds of careers and the nature of the work entailed in them

[lo 5.1]

Divide into groups of four or five learners for this activity. Identify five persons who are engaged in different careers. These must not involve parents and teachers only. Ask a neighbour about the kind of work he or she does, find out what type of work your mother's friend does, etc. Try to move away from the immediate family circle.

What kind of activities do the careers you have identified involve. Assemble the information as follows:

Type of Career What does one do in this career?
1.…………………………………………. ……………………………………………………….
2.
3.
4.
5.

Be imaginative in using cuttings from magazines and newspapers to assemble a collage representing people in these careers, with the kinds of tasks they perform.

During the next period, you will present an oral report to your group to share the information you have gained. The collages will be used for demonstrating your report and will then be evaluated by your educator and used to decorate your classroom.

1.2 critically analyses the causes of common diseases in relation to socio-economic and environmental factors;
1.4 indicates that he/she is able to take responsible and informed decisions on personal and environmental safety; and;
1.5 examines a health and safety issue related to violence, and proposes alternatives to violence as well as counter-strategies.
LO 2
Social Development The learner is able to demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to constitutional rights and responsibilities, and to show an understanding of diverse cultures and religions.
We know this when the learner:
2.1 discusses the violation of human rights and plans counter strategies;
2.2 explains how democratic processes can be employed to deal with local problems;

LO 5

Orientation with Regard to the World of Work

The learner will be able to make informed decisions about further study and career choices.

We know this when the learner:

5.1 identifies and discusses career and study choices and their corresponding requirements;

5.2 investigates career and study opportunities related to own interests and abilities.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
