"Life Skills, Health & Family Life and Citizenship Education, Curriculum Guide for Level 3, Draft" is a guide edited by the Ministry of Education of Guyana in collaboration with UNICEF in 2002. It is a draft document to support the teaching and learning of this critical area of the curriculum. This document can serve as a focal point for departmental and regional sub-committee meetings, where methodologies and strategies for both teaching and assessing are deliberated on. It has a direct focus on an integrated approach to curriculum delivery, in which the teacher is not unduly restricted by the subject content. The list of references should provide teachers with the relevant background for curriculum planning.
