Focusing inquiry: Know learning pathways

Learning about my students' needs

What is important (and therefore worth spending time on), given where my students are at? This focusing inquiry establishes a baseline and a direction. The teacher uses all available information to determine what their students have already learned and what they need to learn next.

Key questions

  • Where has this programme come from?
  • Where can it lead?
  • Does it ensure all learners are able to progress without structural constraints?

Why are these questions important?

In years 9 and 10 the values, key competencies and learning areas lay the foundation for living and further learning. For senior students, schools need to enable access to future school programmes, the workplace, and tertiary courses.
