The Complete Life Orientation Resource
for Grades 10 - 12

Designed specifically for students in Grades 10 through to 12, this resource approaches the syllabus in a relevant, appropriate and inspiring manner. Generic resources can fall short of the specific standards and needs of discerning IEB students and, as a result, this invaluable subject fails to challenge, inspire and equip learners with the skills and abilities needed to live meaningfully and to succeed in our rapidly-changing, globalised society.






Grades 10 and 11:


The Complete Poetry Resource
Poems and Learning Materials for Grades 10 and 11

This in-depth resource is ideal for teaching poetry to learners in Grades 10 and 11. Much more than an anthology, this resource prepares learners for Grade 12 poetry by analysing poems from the last 500 years and presenting each one in the context of its time period, using a combination of perennial favourites from the masters and inspiring, edgy contemporary verse.

Meet the requirements of the curriculum in a completely fresh, contemporary way!
