Exploration Series Life Orientation (CAPS)

Recent research has shown that many educators teaching Life Orientation feel that they are not equipped to interpret lesson concepts and as a result do not teach Life Orientation to the best of their ability. This results in a feeling of frustration and many hours preparing lessons.

Our Life Orientation workbooks provide a unique teacher and learner experience. Our workbooks incorporate an interactive learning experience that will revolutionise your students learning experience. Students remain actively engaged for the full lesson.

Our Life Orientation material allows the teacher to spend less time on lesson preparation and administrative duties, which then creates additional time for active teaching.

  • All textbooks / workbooks are 100% CAPS compliant
  • Our teacher guides include all the content from the student workbooks, making it easy to refer.
  • The entire teachers guide is also included on a CD in flash format, making teaching easier. Over 100 video segments have also been included to make teaching throughout the year more meaningful, fun and interactive.
  • All our material is updated every year ensuring the content you teach is always up to date.
  • All our textbook/workbooks carry Quick Response (QR) codes, which create digital integration into both our printed books and eBooks. These codes provide links to the learner’s electronic devices by accessing video clips and electronic assessments to enhance the learners understanding of the subject’s lesson
  • Easy learning through real-life Case studies and examples.
  • Our workbooks allow students to answer activities and tasks within their books therefore there is no need to purchase any additional student writing material.
  • Our students live in a technological world, therefore teaching with technology has become more vital. Teaching with our material brings updated technology into the classroom, while making learning more interactive, enjoyable and challenging.
  • Our material is very user-friendly no matter the technological knowledge of the teacher (onsite training will also be provided if required)
  • Competitive pricing.

Learner Textbook and Workbook

The learner workbook/textbooks have been refined with the goal of focusing students’ efforts to improve their understanding of the Life Orientation subject causing a natural improvement of their marks.

Written by experienced teachers, the learner 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, self-check exercises 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 Life Orientation 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.

The 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.

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. Through a deeper, multifaceted learning experience, learners will be able to comprehend and retain the information more successfully.

The Flipped Classroom

The “flipped classroom” is a concept in which learners study the content at home using books and interactive technology. The students then complete the practice exercises in the classroom, where learning happens through the application of the concepts and the ability to discuss with peers and teachers.

QR codes can help galvanise this type of learning, by ensuring that concepts are readily available online for the learners at home to engage with and learn from. Learners, especially those who have not understood a concept in the classroom, can then access the learning material at their leisure, wherever they are, helping to bridge their knowledge gaps.

Teacher Guides and Resources

DC Creations teachers guide is accompanied by a rich array of media and supplements that incorporate the visuals from the textbook extensively to form an integrated teaching package.

Our complete set of highly visual PowerPoint presentations comes on a FLASH DRIVE with the Teachers Guide to enhance the classroom experience for the learners.
