Life Orientation One Research Task (ORT)
This is my ORT (One Research Task). It was completed in the 2020 matric year and I received 98% for it. It was done for the subject of Life Orientation and concerns the links between reading and vocabulary.
Outline: This study is done as part of a school research project and uses both primary and secondary research methods. This study intends to show a link between the reading volume of teenage students and their vocabulary size. This study examines children over the age of 16 who attend Uplands College in White River, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Students used in the study are taught in English and have access to both the internet and books. None of the subjects in the study has a diagnosed learning disability as this parameter ensures that results obtained are fair, and a vocabulary deficit is not the consequence of disability.
