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.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

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
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
