5 How the link is made

Economic and management sciences - Substance abuse falls part of


the socio-economic issues that affects the economy. It makes
employees less productive at work and thus affecting production
and operations in a business.

Social Science- The environment in which an individual grows up in


plays an important role in the decisions they make. People in less
developed communities lack opportunities and are more likely to
crime and influenced by drugs and other harmful substances

Natural Science Substance abuse such as alcohol can have a


negative effect on the human body and deteriorate organs such as
the liver and kidneys.

Creative Arts- Learners are given assessments such as posters and


collages. Thus allows learners to become creative and use their
design skills.

6 Approaches

Individual - Learners were given a case study in which they had to


read and answer questions that followed.

Group work-After going through the consequences of substance


abuse, learners were put into groups of 5. They had to read a
cartoon and discuss the different scenarios.

Whole class An open discussion with learners in which they


mentioned how they are exposed to substance abuse near the
school surroundings

8 Three phases of a lesson

8.1. Prior knowledge


- In grade 7, learners were introduced to the concept of substance abuse
and how substances such as alcohol, cigarettes and drugs can have a
negative effect on a person.
- Learners have also mentioned examples of underage drinking, smoking
and the use of illegal substances in their community.

8.2. Teaching-learning moment:

Activity 1

What are the social factors that contribute to substance abuse? The following are some suggested
influences:

1. Families
Children brought up in a family with enough money to provide for all their basic
needs stand a better chance of avoiding substance abuse.
Families who show love and support to their kids are seen as good role models and
these kids are also less likely to be involved in substance abuse
Many children in South Africa come from dysfunctional families which mean they
do not function well and cannot provide proper care for the children. These children
are more likely to be involved in substance abuse.

2. Community
Teenagers spend a lot of time with their friends, so what the group wants to do
plays a big role on individuals.
Teens who do not have a secure family background are more likely to follow
whatever the group decides.
In extreme cases the group is a gang. Some community gangs have complete
control over everyone in the community and everyone lives with drug abuse and
violence.
There are many social groups within the community that offers support and
enjoyment for teenagers such as sports clubs, youth clubs and religious clubs.
Teenagers can find an interest and enjoy structured time with their peers.

3. Media
The media plays an important role in the choices and behaviour of teenagers.
Many movies and series show teenagers drinking or taking drugs. This may have a
negative influence on the individual.

8.3. Closing moment:

Activity 4

Young people are drawn into substance abuse because they let peer
pressure get to them. This can be pressure from friends, family or life in
general. Do you make your own decisions, or do you take the easy way out
and agree to things which you regret later?

Assess your decision making skills.

12 Special Attention

Hearing impairments - one learner has trouble hearing so it is


important that the educator speaks loud and clear. It is also
practical for that learner to sit in front of class
Socio Economic Barriers- Certain learners from poor homes did not
have stationary needed to complete activities. Even though they
were sponsored a set at the beginning of the year, they stated that
some stationery of theirs has been stolen.
Language barrier- English was not the home language for many
learners in class. Even though they understood what was being
spoken about, a few concepts needed to be explained to them.
