2. The advertisement

  • Devise and plan a radio advertisement, advertising a special event happening at the school, e.g. the African Dance of ‘Activities for the Learner’, Grade 9 Module 4 Learning Unit 2.
  • The following aspects must be taken into consideration when planning this advertisement:
  • There has to be a script.
  • Who is doing the voice over (dialogue) for the advertisement?
  • Is there going to be music? if so, what?
  • Will special effects be used?
  • How long is the advertisement going to be? (not more than 60 seconds).
  • Who will be the director?
  • Who will be the producer?
  • Who is going to record the advertisement?
  • Is there recording equipment available for this project?
  • Who is the target audience?
  • Date, time and venue of the performance have to be included in the planning.
  • Divide into groups.
  • Plan, write and produce an advertisement for the “African Dance” of Learning Unit 2, Grade 9 Module 4: Dance.
  • Select the advertisement from the class you would like to broadcast – there can be more than one.


  • Broadcast the winning advertisements over the school intercom to advertise the dance.

Hints for producing a radio advertisement:

Discuss with your group what the ‘feel’ of the advertisement will be.

Select the information you would like to convey – time, date, venue, etc.

Select the special sound effects – if any.

Select the background music.

Write the script.

Select the person(s) who is(are) going to do the voice-over.

Keep your target audience in mind.

Be creative!

Have fun!

Hints for recording a radio advertisement:

Experiment with distance from the microphone (far-away sounds).

Experiment with loud and soft sounds – that includes the voice-over, music and special effects.

Do you want the music to be in the background or a prominent feature?


Learning Outcome(LOs)
LO 1
creating, interpreting and presentingThe learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms.
Assessment Standards(ASe)
We know this when the learner:
1.1 participates in the choreography and presentation of a short dance for a performance or cultural event;1.2 in preparing the body, accurately performs a set warm-up and skill-building sequence, including body conditioning and dance technique in a particular style;1.3 moves across space in movement sequences with co-ordination, musicality, quality, style, balance and control;1.4 learns and performs, with appropriate style and movement quality, works choreographed by others from at least two cultures, which may be:
1.4.1 classical / traditional (African, Eastern or Western);
1.4.2 contemporary;
1.5 creates a dance that fuses steps or styles from more than one South African dance form with a clear beginning, middle and ending.
1.6 conducts a simple warm-up routine with the class;1.7 participates in an aspect of planning, organising, advertising, marketing, fund-raising or producing a dramatic item for an audience;


Activity 1

With this module you have to guide the learners to be able to conduct a warm-up routine for the class. It is important they keep the following aspects of the warm-up in mind when planning their warm-up routine:

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
