A TEACHING resource aimed at educators and students at the Sixth Form level was launched yesterday by the Curriculum Development Department (CDD) under the Ministry of Education.

The latest instalment in the Magic Moments DVD produced by CfBT Brunei and the CDD is entitled, “Magic Moments in Sixth Form”.

Present to launch the DVD was Director of the CDD Hj Abdul Rahman Hj Nawi who said that the resource proves itself valuable as there is a shortage of similar resources aimed at sixth form centres.

“There is much in this DVD and the accompanying instructions and the worksheets that can be put to good use,” said Hj Abdul Rahman.

“It is an excellent resource to induct Lower Six students to the flavour and expectations of the AS and A-level programmes,” said the director.

“I believe this will have the positive impact of empowering our students to take responsibility for their own learning and progress, thus preparing them for tertiary education and lifelong learning,” added the director.

He also urged Sixth Form centre principals to enlist the help of the teachers who had helped put the resource together as part of their sixth form professional development programme.

Secondary school teachers could also make use of the resource, he said.

According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Education, the resource is expected to enhance teaching and learning of various Sixth Form subjects such as General Paper, AS English and Literature, Thinking Skills, English Language and English Literature.

The launch of the teaching resource took place at the ministry’s building.
