  • DEFINITION

    The teacher takes pupils from all grades at the same time.

    EXAMPLE OF USE

    Throughout Africa, descriptions of the conditions of one-teacher schools and multigrade classes reveal serious problems: make-shift facilities, lack of teaching materials, and no support for teachers. All of these factors complicate the lives and the task of rural teachers, who are often younger, less experienced and less qualified than their urban counterparts (Brunswic and Valérien, 2004: 43).

  • DEFINITION

    Utilization of the outdoor environment to promote experiential learning and enrich the curriculum.

    EXAMPLE OF USE

    Outdoor education includes both environmental education and education for sustainable development, as they are a part of NCC. McRae (1990) has further divided outdoor education into knowledge focused outdoor teaching and learning, ecologically focused outdoor environmental education and outdoor leisure education that is focused on personal growth. In this study, outdoor education includes all these aspects, as these aspects are all part of an ordinary school day and National Core Curriculum for Basic Education (2004) (Smeds, Jeronen, Kurppa and Vieraankivi, 2011: 268).
