Life orientation

Grade 6

Personal development

Module 13

Negotiation and mediation skills

By means of role-playing in the peer group assignment, learners have already been familiarised with negotiation as a means to reach peaceful solutions.

Here we have a number of concepts – mostly from the political world – describing various forms of negotiation:

  • Ubuntu
  • Détente
  • Negotiations
  • Discussions
  • Mediation
  • Brainstorming
  • Indaba

Activity 1:

To design a poster that portrays the meaning of a negotiation concept

[lo 3.4]

Group Assignment

Each group is given one concept to research. It might be a good idea to start with a dictionary. At the end of the assignment, each group designs a poster containing the word and its meaning. Try to find one example from our country’s political history (consult newspapers and the Internet). Newspaper photographs should also help you to enhance your understanding of a particular concept. Each group leader takes a turn to explain his/her poster to the rest of the class.

Successful self-management:

The concept of self-management means taking responsibility for yourself, and leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle so that you can enjoy a happy and healthy youth.

Effective time-management is very important. It means allowing enough time to occupy yourself with various activities and in such a way that you can speak of a “balanced” programme.

Activity 2:

To fill in a table on self-management

[lo 3.5]

Individual Assignment

  1. Complete the following table in an honest an accurate way.

How much time (hours or minutes) per day do you devote to each of the following?

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Watching TV
Family meals
  1. Using a different coloured ink or colour pencil, write down how much time you should spend on each activity. If there are big differences, talk to the teacher or your parents to see if you cannot manage your time more effectively. If you have filled in 0 minutes in any of the spaces, you should think twice, and ask somebody’s advice.
  2. Compare your table to that of a friend, and discuss the differences in your time allocation.


Learning outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
Personal DevelopmentThe learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.
Assessment standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
3.1 reflects on own abilities, aptitudes, interests and strengths as well as body image;
3.2 explains how to respond to peer pressure in different situations;
3.3 demonstrates compassion by caring for people and animals;
3.4 demonstrates peacekeeping and mediation skills in different conflict situations;
3.5 explains what has been learned by reflecting on an experience related to self-management skills;
3.6 describes and selects a range of problem-solving skills for different contexts.

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.

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 ?
What is lattice structure?
