dc.description.abstract The discussion I am going to have today is nothing unique and has been used in many History classrooms and other subjects' classrooms. However I do not think it has been explored as a teaching medium in a great deal before and it is this that I would like to present today. The generation of pupil being taught today is a pupil who is firstly challenged by new strategies and secondly inspired by the visual medium. The old "chalk and talk" approach does not inspire (not that I think it ever inspired) or motivate the pupil of the 21st Century. I will present two different visual medium examples: • The use of a dramatized History film, ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT in Grade 8; • The use of the overhead projector for a focus on APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA, in Grade 9. en_US
