Content Section

Emerging issues

New or important learning content that is considered relevant for learners. As the curriculum needs to respond to emerging issues as they arise (for example, HIV and AIDS prevention, peace education, sustainable development, etc.), one approach that can be adopted is to integrate or mainstream knowledge, skills and attitudes that will bring the desired behaviours related to these issues into the existing learning areas or subjects, thereby engaging learners in the process of solving ‘real-life’ problems. (Adapted from: UNICEF 2000).
