a) what is known about a topic
Climate change: In my pure science department course in Biology and Chemistry the concept of pollution and its effect including climate change are cross-cutting. However, reflecting on what is being taught I realise that its been so cut and dried according to what the textbooks says. Even the District school debates that are run by schools annually where students talk about climate change there is not much out of what is commonly known.
b) what is not yet known about a topic (in this case, climate change in Southern Africa).
I think We have not really taken it out of the classroom, into the communities where we talk about this with the village elders so they can tell us their stories so our students see climate change and its progress through the lens of our own context.
