Dynamic Curriculum Creations - For all your CAPS and IEB Curriculum requirements and Teacher Resources


Exploration Series History

Research has shown that many teachers teaching History feel that they are not adequately equipped to provide an exciting and riveting lesson week in and week out. As a result learners often see History as a dull and boring subject, with most students wishing that it could be made more visual and interactive.

Our History workbooks provide a unique teacher and learner experience. Our workbooks incorporate an interactive learning experience that will revolutionise your teaching and have the learners being actively engaged for your full lesson time. Your students will be eager to learn when they visualise the concepts you are teaching by using our teacher controlled PowerPoint flash files, which include videos and animations for every lesson. These are easily projected onto a screen and require little computer knowledge.

Student Textbook and Workbook

The student workbook/textbook have been refined with the goal of focusing students’ efforts to improve their
understanding of History causing a natural improvement of their marks.

Written by experienced teachers, the student textbook (which is also a workbook) is a comprehensive CAPS curriculum textbook and helps students identify the important points from the text, and then reinforces this recently acquired knowledge through the review exercises, electronic assessments, QR codes, electronic assessments and vocabulary review.

Digital Integration through QR Codes

new active learning approach in the DC Creations workbooks offers students a structured learning path and provides a reliable, consistent framework for mastering the CAPS History concepts.

DC Creations Exploration Series textbooks and workbooks carry QR codes, which create digital integration into both our printed books and eBooks. These codes provide links to video clips, electronic assessments, tutorials and customised or related reading to help learners understand the subjects content better.

Quick Response (QR) codes is a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, which are essentially links that can be read by smartphone cameras.

Our DC Creations Exploration Series textbooks and workbooks are “energised”, carrying QR codes, which allow the learners to access video and electronic assessments and additional material to supplement the comprehensive content already included in the books.

Learners can go beyond the textbook knowledge to study a particular chapter or content with just a mobile phone to download the content through these digital codes. For example, in our History textbook, the lesson which explains the The 1905 Revolution, there are several QR code printed next to the content heading. Scanning the QR code will lead to the video content, thereby providing the learner a deeper understanding of the material and visually explaining the content to the learners in digital format.

Our basic idea towards the initiative is to take the child beyond imagination and feel the reality, thereby improving lesson understanding and their report grades. If a teacher explains a concept, a child will better understand because he can now see a visual representation of the content. By integrating the QR digital links, learners can simply scan and learn much more about the subject.
