Sterilisation. Spayed and castrated dogs live longer, are less aggressive and are more sociable pets.

Regular walks. Dogs need to go for walks beyond the confines of the garden. It is necessary for sensual stimulation and to broaden their horizons. Remember always to remove the ‘doggy do’ and do not walk them where they are not welcome, as on some beaches.

Canine friends. Most dogs enjoy one another’s company. If you have two dogs, they should be of opposite sexes. Never have two pups from the same litter, as they bond with each other rather than with the owner. One will also always try to dominate. Dogs need a doggy friend to prevent boredom.

Part of the family. A dog must be seen as a family member. Everything should be shared: visitors, being indoors and outdoors. Intimate contact with one’s dog is important: rub its tummy, massage its skin, fiddle with its paws and ears, open its mouth, brush its coat. Do this from puppyhood and your dog will be your lifelong best friend.

(Adapted from the Your Family November 2002)

Do your rough draft here: (The wording of your facts is very important. Remember that you have been asked to list points characterising a suitable dog owner, so you should be saying things like, Good dog owners give their dogs a good deal of attention. A good dog owner ensures that his dog is well fed) . . .

Now edit your summary. Check that you have listed only characteristics of a good dog owner and no other irrelevant information.

Use the following CHECKLIST to ensure that you have done exactly what is required of you:

What to remember to do Tick
Always use your own words .
Always write in full sentences .
Do not quote .
Do not exceed the stipulated number of words.
Number each point.
List only one fact per line.
Leave a line between each point .
Always give your summary a heading which you can either underline or write in capital letters .
Your heading must be factual, not creative.


LO 3
Reading and ViewingThe learner will be able to read and view for informa­tion and enjoyment, and respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
We know this when the learner:
3.1 reads a text;3.2 understands some elements of poetry;3.4 reads for information.



It is important to introduce the learners to the world of reading in an enthusiastic and inspiring manner. Make sure that you have read the story carefully and understood it fully. Ask the learners what they picture in their mind’s eye. What the characters look like, what the photographs look like, what the road and house look like; what they feel for the various characters, what expressions might have been evident on their faces firstly at the start of the outing and then at the end.

It is always fun to let the learners pretend that they are film producers. Let them answer the above questions in this context. How would they tell their ‘actors’ to act, look, move, feel etc.

Emphasise the importance of presentation of work:

  • - They must write as neatly as possible and
  • - Pay attention to spacing.

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.
