SILLABUSINHOUD
Geskiedenis en Geografie word as afsonderlike maar verwante dissiplines in Sosiale Wetenskappe aangebied. ‘n Situasie van Geskiedenis stel die leerders in staat om progressief die volgende te ontwikkel:

  • ‘n algemene kennis en begrip van al die mense wat in Suid-Afrika woonagtig is.
  • ‘n begrip van ons diverse verlede en hoe dit ons huidige werklikheid beïnvloed.
  • ‘n begrip van interpretasie van erfenis en die rol daarvan in die vorming van identiteit.

Geography is the study of the human and physical environment. Geography is an integrated discipline that examines both physical and human processes over space and time. Geography, therefore, includes the study of:

 

  • Spatial patterns and trends: the location of people and places in the world.
  • Similarity and difference: how environments and lifestyles compare and the reasons for similarities and differences.
  • Movement: how and why people, goods, water, land, and air move and change.
