1. First, interviewing at least 12 learners to find out what their preference is so that you can base your design on their ideas.

Consider the call for a national uniform. How could you design the uniform in such a way that each school is easily identifiable.

Design only a summer uniform, a winter uniform and a sports range or informal wear.

a) Work out questions, that will give you reliable answers, to ask the learners.

  • On a separate page, write down the answers you are given by 50 learners – this means that each member of your group will have to conduct a number of interviews and you will have a good sample of the school.
  • Finally, summarise the results of the interviews.

Your Conclusion:

2. When you have completed the activity, including the interviews, present your design to the class. Each member of the team should be responsible for the following aspects:

a) Introducing the team members and saying who was responsible for each item in the course of the planning.

b) Presentation of your design.

Present the design by means of paper dolls, or have a fashion show, or choose another method.

c) Explain why you chose this design.

d) Give the cost of the uniform items.

e) Give the results of interviews that you held with learners to elicit their views of your design.

Activity 4:

To explore the creative use of language and use writing to generate appropriate text

[lo 4.1.2, 4.4]

  • Short pieces of writing show errors very quickly so it is important to know the format and the content and style of some shorter pieces of writing. See how you fare:
  • You have been invited to the Rose Ball . Write the formal invitation and your reply:
  • Now send a fax to your best friend telling her or him about what you and your partner will be wearing. (You might like to include a colourful design).

Now pretend that you have already gone to this famous formal dance.

  • Describe the hall, the decorations, the food and the music (without using ANY slang or contractions!). Write so well that your answer could be used for a newspaper article!
  • And finally, write a thank-you letter to the organizer of the function, congratulating the team on the success of the function:


Learning outcomes(LOs)

LO 2


The learner will be able to communicate confidently and effectively in spoken language in a wide range of situations.

Assessment standards(ASs)

We know this when the learner:

2.1 communicates ideas and feelings creatively and expressively with a great degree of confidence and with limited assistance, using a range of selected oral types;

2.3 demonstrates basic skills in a range of oral text types;

2.4 demonstrates a range of interaction skills by participating actively in group discussions, conversations, debates and group surveys, and while so doing:

  • 2.4.4 acknowledges others’ opinions and disagrees politely when necessary.

LO 3

Reading and Viewing

The 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:

what does nano mean?
Anassong Reply
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?

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.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
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 ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
