Midge – part 1

Educator section

Memorandum

For the educator:

The ICS modules for Grade 3 encourage learners to do extensive reading, both fiction and non-fiction. They are given frequent opportunities to write and develop their vocabulary and language use. These developing skills are supported by techniques and strategies to develop phonic awareness. Word recognition and comprehension skills are practised and phonics systematically introduced and consolidated.

The learning outcomes for Grade 3 are purposefully integrated to enable learners to write about texts which they have listened to, discussed and read.

The topics chosen for the modules are of interest to the Grade 3 learner, within their range of experience and other learning areas, namely, Life Orientation and Mathematics are well integrated.

Learners in Grade 3 use their communication skills more effectively and given the opportunity, these can overcome social, cultural and language boundaries. They become more sensitive to the needs of everyone around them.

All aspects of language learning as described in the learning outcomes and assessment standards for Grade 3 have been covered in these eight ICS modules. By reinforcing, consolidating and applying these supported by the Critical and Developmental Outcomes, the learners will be able to think and reason in their home language.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and cursive writing requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

Module 3 is the first of three modules about “Midge” who is a mouse and who communicates with the learners via letters which he writes to them.

Interesting topics for discussion come up e.g.

  • Why did the mouse family leave the forest?
  • Which dangers did they encounter in the forest?
  • Will their new habitat be a safer place, etc.?

Correct punctuation is practised and learners are made aware of the use of the comma.

Pictive writing is used as a means of communication between Midge and the learners. They are challenged to read a mouse-riddle in “mouse language”.

  • Cursive writing: e , l , b , k , f , j , g , y , x , z
  • Phonics: The “ oo ” family consisting of ” oo ”, “ ew ”, “ ui ”, “ ue ” and “ ou ” as in would .

Problem solving skills are practised when learners are confronted with a problem.

Integration of themes

  • A healthy environment

Midge teaches the learners to keep their classroom environment free of pollution (noise as well as harmful, unhealthy litter).

Water conservation should be practised.

  • Social Justice

Irrespective of gender or race, there are social rules to be respected, e.g. obeying elders and taking heed of their suggestions.

  • Human Rights

Although everyone has a rights, everyone also has certain responsibilities towards their fellow beings, e.g. showing concern when they are ill, unhappy, sad or treated unkindly.

Emotions can't be measured, but they can be recognized. To be able to recognize certain characteristics that'll give me an idea about an individual's state of mind.

then more then just recognize but to comprehend the emotions being observed separating your own emotions from the situation currently in.. and rationally gaging the environment.. while then pulling each possible emotional vibe or energy exerted from the human being observed

How does learning influence behaviour
Tumpa Reply
our choice of study molds us and encourages us to practice what we learn. social structure also changes behavior based on the environment and peers. how we learn can be experimental as not everyone lesrns the same. some are more of a hands-on absorber, whereas others may learn better from listening
A confidence from personal knowledge. Not from having been taugbt. knowledge that you learned what was taught.

what is development
Momna Reply
In what Context are you referring to
Hassan
the progression/degression/growth of something. it is interpreted most commonly in psychology as how something is created or formed. ex: When did you develop an interest in psychology?
when refering to physical, cognitive, and social development, these types of development are determined by many circumstances. such as demographics, biology, and personality/character
it is the apprehensions fluency based by the process of configurations to a design based on product/witness series noticeboards to note the stats on order to retail agreements on stated series order.

I understand there is a link between stress and illness and disease. that when you are in high-stress situations for prolonged periods of time that the brain releases an abundance of stress hormones such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol, and aldosterone. idk anymore than that.

If you really considered looking into yourself find the reason of the possibilities or the environment and atmosphere in which you're placed with or without choice in voluntary or involuntary from birth to now, and also consider all existential extensions of yourself including spiritual recognition.

Freud is considered as the father of Psychoanalysis not psychology
Indefatigable
technically Freud would be the father of psychology because he discovered the id ego and super ego
Bryce
Its kind of a loaded question. There are many early greats in psychology each having their own theories and views. I think it is more of a collective of ideals that make up our current view and understanding of psychology.

I agree with you Jason. there are Amazing psychologist back then that made the foundation for the field of psychology

what do you think psychology courses are often requirments of different programs to study?
Miah Reply
i was going to say i didn't understand your question. but as I was about to question you about it, I realized what you were trying to say. anyways, psychology majors obviously have the most psychology courses. however, other programs such as Social Work, and Addictions Counseling, or just Counseling
Gaunt
all have a very heavy load of psychology based courses as the actual positions require a strong psychology background and general knowledge of different fields of psychology.
Gaunt
Also, a lot of business majors require atleast one psychology course. So they can know how to read people when making a sale.
Jessi
also fields like health care, education, criminal justice, law, human resources, and marketing all have some type of psychological background thats needed or at the least beneficial to being successful in the profession.
Gaunt
Can anyone explain me Clearly, how to get psychologist licence
Zainab
You pick a college and visit the admissions building. Then you ask to speak to an advisor. Ask them what all you need to do at their college or University. Most require a specific set of classes, 4 years full time or 6 years part time. Then take a state test.
Jessi
any field of work required psychology, because psychology is a sources of knowledge
Musa

Bryce
bored that is when you start to open up your book and you see a chapter for behavioral psychology and you just get ingross into that chapter that you didn't realize that the class was over. you now like psychology because psychology is used everywhere
Bryce
psychology pertains to just about everything if not all.
jeddy
The root ology    denotes scientific study of, and psychology    refers to the scientific study of the mind. Since science studies only observable phenomena and the mind is not directly observable, we expand this definition to the scientific study of mind and behavior.
