Draft Curriculum for ECCE - Grade 8 is completed. Please give your feedback on the material provided.
*There are three documents included in this section:
The Curriculum document sets out what should be taught in each grade and subject. It includes details about course contents (concepts, scope, learning domains, standards, benchmarks, student learning objectives, etc.)
The progression grid shows the progression of knowledge and skills from one grade to the next. This helps in ensuring that students are taught age-appropriate material and that teachers are sequencing learning effectively and avoiding repetition of material that was taught in earlier grades.
The overview includes all the improvements that have been incorporated in the subject area and the rationale for doing so.
Please find below a glossary of terms that are used in the documents:
Domain: Disciplines within a learning area. For example: History, Geography, Economics and Civics can be domains in Social Studies.
Standard: The long-term learning goals and understandings for a particular lesson, chapter or the whole course.
Student Learning Outcome: Observable mechanism for when students will use the knowledge and skills they acquire from a particular lesson, chapter, or the whole course and apply those knowledge and skills to new situations which can even be beyond the context of the specific course.
Note: A subject is divided into domains. Each domain has standards which are used to determine the benchmark or minimum standards. After identification of minimum standards for each learning level, detailed student learning outcomes are designed by subject experts
