Title: Parent's Perceptions of Grade R Teaching and Learning
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the perceptions of parents of Grade R learners regarding teaching and learning. This will be compared to relevant education theories and the Foundation Phase curriculum and assessment policies to establish whether parents’ perceptions of Grade R teaching and learning differ from prescribed policy, and that which is age-appropriate. This study is based on qualitative methodology and uses a single case study approach. The case identified is located in the suburb of Westville in the Pinetown School District. Open-ended questionnaires, semi-structured interviews, and document analysis were used for data collection. Parents of Grade R learners from two ECD centres were purposively selected to respond to the questionnaire. The Grade R teachers from each centre were also interviewed. A document analysis of the Mathematics, English Home Language, and Life Skills curriculum and assessment policies was also conducted. The findings revealed that parents’ perceptions regarding Grade R teaching and learning significantly differed in relation to current literature and prescribed curriculum policies. Parents’ expectations of the curriculum also exerted pressure on teachers and learners, thus it is recommended that parents become au fait with the use of play as an appropriate teaching and learning strategy in the informal Grade R year.
Keywords: teaching and learning, parents, perception, Grade R, play

Title: The Utilization of Mind Maps to Assist a Student with Autism Spectrum Disorder in a Curriculum and Material Development Class
Abstract: Everybody has the right to get an education, and a student with Autism Spectrum Disorder is no exception. There is a student with ASD that enrolled in my Curriculum and Material Development Class. He was so enthusiastic, diligent, and passionate. However, it turned out that he found it difficult to follow the lesson because his levels of learning were on the first and second levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy—that is, to remember and understand. In Curriculum and Material Development class, the students need to apply, evaluate, analyze, and create something. Most of them are considered as Higher Order Thinking Skills. Another difficulty lies in the fact that he struggled even to remember and understand the materials. Therefore, my partner and I decided to assist him by differentiating the assignments and using mind maps to assist him remember and understand the lesson. In this paper, I will investigate the challenges and benefits of using mind maps. The findings suggest that the ASD student often forgot how to make an effective mind map and he found it difficult to make a mind map by himself. Hence, repetitions and assistance from lecturers in making mind maps are of utmost importance. With the help of the lecturers, the ASD student found it easier to remember and understand the materials.
Keywords: Mind Maps, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Curriculum and Material Development (CMD)
