LO 3.5


Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
participation and cooperationThe learner is able to display personal and social skills while participating in arts and culture activities as an individual and in a group.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
This is demonstrated when the learner:
3.1 shows entrepreneurial skills in marketing artworks;
3.2 keeps to the time schedule through management and self-discipline;
3.3 investigates career options in arts and culture;
3.4 collaborates to:3.4.1 co-operates with other members of the group during art activities;
3.4.2 shows the ability to make a personal contribution within the context of the group;
VISUAL ARTS3.8 does research with regard to the arts and shares information with other learners;
MUSIC3.7 is able to do research on the emotional aspects of music;
DRAMA3.6 is able to apply research on informal theatre;
DANCE/MOVEMENT3.5 is able to do research on career possibilities in dance and share the information.



  • Dance can supplement and complement the visual arts, music and drama.
  • Use music that featured in the music class to accompany the dance activities
  • Warming-up exercises should be increased and done regularly. The programme should include body-conditioning exercises, technical skills exercises, movement combinations and movement sequences.
  • Choose movements from Grade 7 and build short movement sequences. Experiment with different rhythms. Make use of the respective design elements and allow learners the opportunity to put together own combinations.
  • Warming up should not take up more than 15 minutes of class time.

Activity 1

  • Learners in their journals prepare a list of positive as well as negative words concerning feelings and emotions, e.g.

happy, alone, love, hate, strong, etc.

  • Find a colour that expresses each of these emotions or feelings, e.g. does yellow make you happy, do you feel like moving fast or slowly, do you feel like jumping or does it make you feel lazy? Does blue make you feel strong, do you feel like shrinking or stretching, despondent, crazy, exuberant or reserved? Explore and experience the colours with movement.
  • Learners can take turns to shout different words that give expression to feelings or emotion. Learners must react immediately and spontaneously to the word – without thinking too much – with appropriate movement. Repeat several times. Learners can even move into each other’s personal space and make contact (without hurting each other) in order to express the feeling of the word.
  • Work as a group or pair, create an own story and have a ‘movement discussion’. Explore various types of movement, such as locomotor and non-locomotor movements.

Self assessment/reflection (to be written down in your diary or journal)

  1. Were you able to use your imagination without inhibitions? What was easy and what did you find difficult?
  2. Did you make use of locomotor and non-locomotor movements?
  3. Were you afraid to think creatively, or not?
  4. Did you make use of the various design elements in your attempt to create?
  5. Which design elements did you not use?
  6. Were you willing to take chances in order to live up to your imagination?

Presenting dance in the classroom

  • The creation of an atmosphere of safety, trust and of being accepted in the dance class is essential. A structure with continued understanding and empathy must be maintained as well.
  • Establish a control mechanism by means of control exercises to make the learners feel safe and able to enjoy themselves.
  • Freedom of movement must be ensured by means of comfortable clothing. Going bare-footed allows complete mobility of the feet and prevents learners from slipping, and is therefore preferable.
  • Availability of space must be taken into account when planning the activities. If the classroom is too small and a hall is not available, a space can be demarcated on the sport field (weather permitting). Make sure that all learners remain visible. Desks in the classroom can also be stacked to create more space. If the space is too small still, divide the learners into groups and let the groups take turns. To link up with the visual arts part, the learners can be allowed to dance in the three colour groups.
  • Dance activities/exercises must be accompanied by music on either cassets or CD, or by using tambourines, drums, etc.
  • Learners must also use diaries or journals to make personal notes.

General research task

  • Learners can eventually be given an assignment to research career possibilities in the various art disciplines – dance, drama, music and visual arts.Resulting from the research the class can be divided into four and each group can represent one of the disciplines. A debate can then take place with the educator as facilitator.

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?
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 ?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
