PDE2 Subject Briefing Slides

It enhances the personal development of the individual in the social and community domains and equips students with the skills and knowledge to: • examine their social and emotional development • explain the values that emerge as they engage in assigned activities • This subject provides the theoretical concepts and practical arena for students to learn values through hands-on activities and learning journeys.

A hardcopy will be given to you by your CP and a softcopy can be obtained from OLIVE under the tab ‘About The Subject’. A weekly schedule will be printed for your Care Group. I would like to seek CPs’ help to ensure all students have a copy. Schedule is also down-able. A suggested teaching plan appended with powerpoint slides will also be given to all CPs at least one week before each PDE2 lesson.
