Gurgaon: The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has released a progressive new curriculum in November 2016 at their annual conference. This step aims at helping young learners develop 21 century skills and keep themselves updated on the rapidly evolving world. As per verbal information from School Heads, the new curriculum is effective 2017-18 but implementation is mandated by 2018-19.
This move has been widely appreciated by the education community and will bring about uniformity in primary and middle schools affiliated to the Council.
In line with this bold initiative, Frank Bros. an imprint of Macmillan Education, has launched Curriculum Connect – complementary course materials to be used with the existing course books to support teachers and students for seamless transition to a new syllabus. Curriculum Connect reflects several new features of the curriculum, covering skills and competencies with regard to content.
Macmillan Education informed that Curriculum Connect will be available for all leading course books: Bridges Plus, Joy of Mathematics, Frank New Certificate Physics, Chemistry and Biology, Frank Middle School Geography, Early Birds and Eureka Plus. Mr Yash Mehta, Director, Schools, Macmillan Education said, “Schools affiliated to the CISCE can comfortably prescribe textbooks by Macmillan Education and Frank Bros., and be assured of timely support”.
