South African teachers face numerous challenges in the school
Good day colleague.
Hello Dipuo. You are a novice teacher. South African teachers face numerous challenges in the school. What challenge do you think you will experience in the school?
Change of curriculum as a challenges experienced by South African teachers
One of the challenges experienced by South African teachers is the regular curriculum changes. Educational policies are amended as way of addressing the shortcomings of the country’s prior education system (Adu & Ngibe, 014: 983) however, teachers tend to struggle to adapt to these new changes, facing challenges in terms of implementing the new curriculum in the classroom.
Wow!That is interesting. What skillsdo you as a novice teacher have and how do you intend to apply it when youare faced with these challenges in your prospective position
The skills I have as a novice teacher
I intend on using my computer skills (World Economic Forum, 2015) to find creative resources to include in implementing new curriculum changes, using applications to make my lesson more interesting to the learners and to research more about the curriculum implemented. I also intend on using my time-management skills (Joubert & Prinsloo, 2013) to help me manage with the workload, making sure that I never fall behind or overwork the learners.
Uh! So you are a teacher with 21st century technological skills (World Economic Forum, 2015). Using digital tools to enhance your teaching and learning environment (Adu & Nondwe, 2014)
