A MODULAR CURRICULUM

The modularity of the Standard-based English Languange Curriculum is of a modular structure. By organising the curriculum standards under five modules, pupils will be able to focus on the development of silent language skills or sub-skills under each module through purposeful activities in meaningful contexts. This modular approach does not exclude integaration of skills. However, skills intergration is exploited strategically to enchance pupils development of specific languange skills as described in the content and learning standards in a module. The curriculum is modular in design and this is reflected in the organization of the content and learning standards.
In order to make learning more meaningful and purposeful, language input is presented under themes and topics which are appropriate for pupils. Three broad themes have been identified in the curriculum.
i)World Of Self, Family and Friends
ii)World Of Stories and
iii)World Of Knowledge
