Many students believe science is limited to learning vocabulary terms, labeling pictures, and memorizing facts. Science by nature is much more than this. Have you ever wondered how or why something in nature happens? You might even ask questions about it. This is science. Science works best when it starts with curiosity and includes innovation. We learn science best when we apply it to our everyday lives. Science is not only learning about space and living things. However, there are cross-cutting concepts connecting all scientific ideas.

Many students think of science as learning vocabulary words, labeling pictures, and memorizing facts. Science is much more than that. Have you ever asked yourself questions about the world around you and wondered how or why they are happening? This is science. Science works best when we are curious and look for new ways to answer questions or solve problems. In order for you to experience science in its fullest sense you must take it beyond the classroom and include it in your everyday experiences.

The key focus of the ACE (School Management and Leadership) programme is to facilitate real transformation in schools that is grounded in recognition of the challenges of particular contexts and the values underpinning the South African Constitution.

We begin by exploring the school as a learning organization and promoting a culture of learning and teaching, which is dedicated to constant renewal and improvement. We will also tackle the issue of context, and will look at the ways in which the physical environment of the school impacts on the quality of learning. This leads us into an exploration of the challenges of effectively planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating a curriculum that needs constantly to change and reinvent itself in line with the changing needs of a changing society. In particular, we focus on what is required to improve teaching and learning in order to produce enhanced learner outcomes. This paves the way for the identification and development of the skills and processes needed to lead and manage effective teaching and learning. (less)
