Assessment

Learning Outcome(LOs)
LO 1
creating, interpreting and presentingThe learner will be able to create, interpret and represent work in each of the art forms.
Assessment Standards(ASe)
We know this when the learner:
DANCE
1.1 learns and performs steps from dances of popular cultures;
1.2 in preparing the body:
  • performs a set warm-up that conditions, stretches and strengthens the body;
  • demonstrates increasing kinaesthetic awareness, concentration and awareness of the correct and safe use of the spine and limbs;
1.2.3 moves across space in combinations of steps with co-ordination style and musicality;
1.3 improvises, composes and combines movements, using:1.3.1 movements or gestures;1.3.2 repetition and stillness;1.3.3 contrasting dynamics;
1.4 performs dance steps and combinations from at least two different styles of traditions of Southern Africa;

Memorandum

Activity 1

  • Warm up : Before any creative activity, the body must be warmed and loosened up in order for the learner to move comfortably. The warm-up also puts the learner at ease with the physical situation and is introductory to the activities that are to follow.
  • To avoid any injuries during the class, it is important to warm up the muscles. Start all warm-up sessions with breathing (controlled inhaling and exhaling), in order for the muscles to have enough oxygen to execute the movements.
  • As you guide the learners through this activity, make sure that the learners execute the exercises correctly and safely. Guidelines are given with each exercise to ensure proper execution.

Warm-up exercise

  • These exercises can be done to music. Preferably modern pop music, as learners relate to them. Tempo must be approximately between 125 and 136 beats per minute, which is a mid-tempo beat. (Compared to a slow tempo of between 84 and 125 beats per minute and a fast tempo of between 139 and 160 beats per minute.)
  • Refer to Activities for the Learner for the practical and physical demonstration.
  • Hints / Suggestions
  • Learners should breathe normally throughout the warm up.
  • Make sure learners have full range of motion when executing each movement.
  • Count audibly throughout the warm-up.
  • Learners must be able to hear your instructions above the music.
  • Take note of any learner not executing the exercise properly.
  • Correct any learner not executing the exercises properly.
  • Take note of any learner not knowing left from right.

Activity 2

  • With this Activity, you are going to guide the learners in an exercise where they will explore movement in space with accompaniment. We shall be discovering African Dance eventually, and it is important for the learners to get to know the music and movements first before they can choreograph their own African Dance.
  • As Heritage Day is coming up in September, it would be appropriate to explore African dance and then perform a dance on Heritage Day for the celebrations.

Prasenjit Reply
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?
