3.8.1 summarises main and supporting ideas;
3.8.2 selects and records relevant information appropriately;
LO 5
THINKING AND REASONINGThe learner is able to use language to think and reason, as well as to access, process and use information for learning.
We know this when the learner:
5.1 uses language to think and reason:
5.1.1 distinguishes cause from effect in a variety of cross-curricular contexts;
5.1.3 develops a balanced argument on relevant and challenging issues;
5.2 uses language to investigate and explore:
5.2.1 asks critical questions that challenge and seek alternative explanations;
5.2.2 asks follow-up questions to get deeper answers;
5.2.3 discusses the validity of information by comparison with other sources;
5.3 processes information:
5.3.4 draws conclusions and makes recommendations;
5.4 uses language to think creatively:
5.4.1 describes what learner visualises after reading or listening to a text;

Memorandum

Guidelines for note-taking Guidelines for writing summaries
1. Listen carefully to the title, as it gives you a clue as to what the text is about. 1. Each paragraph has a main idea based on a key word or key words.
2. Write down key words as you listen, and note how thoughts link as they progress. Try to follow the line of reasoning – look for the “golden thread”. 2. There must be a link between paragraphs, in other words, they must be connected somehow.
3. Take note, especially, of the introduction and the conclusion. The introduction “sets the scene” (introduces the theme) and the conclusion rounds it off. 3. Think of a title; it must encapsulate the theme of the summary. Remember that there must be no superfluous text, only what is relevant and necessary.

Comprehension activity:

1. No, the programme content is irrelevant. TV watching makes children passive, it turns them into TV addicts, it makes them avoid the realities of life and causes anti-social behaviour.

2. People (especially children) simply “plug in” (turn on the TV) to escape from real life, and find it so pleasurable that they want to do nothing else.

4. They see others as objects and are also unable to judge the real feelings of others in real life situations.

5. It is valuable when it is only occasionally watched, as children need to be actively involved in the learning process.

6. Own

Example: The mental and physical effects of TV viewing.
