Curriculum or Syllabus?

Could we change away from the use of the word curriculum?

I have always understood curriculum to be quite a fine level of detail that a teacher or group of students set for themselves, including break times, sequencing, lesson plans, etc.

What we are talking about (I think) is syllabus, competency units, assessment standards

Hi Leigh,

Surely, let us use the standard term Qualification Framework in our discussions, that can accommodate our entire agenda upto content- activity level.


with the permission of all friends on this discussion forum and other community members let me move the url http://www.wikieducator.org/Curriculum_INDEX to http://www.wikieducator.org/Qualification_Framework

...yea, I've done it. Now it is http://www.wikieducator.org/Qualification_Framework

Curriculum stages

In India at the National level (NCERT) we refer to grades 1-5 as primary, 6-8 as middle, 9-10 as senior secondary, and 11-12 as secondary.

Yours thoughts on this. Savithri

Dear Savithri ji,

It is a fine categorization of curriculum stages, but with respect to the stage names, I think the ‘middle’ seems to be not a perfect name for a curriculum stage. Similarly if the name Senior Secondary had come after Secondary it would have been more self-explanatory than the existing pattern. If it makes some sense please trigger a discussion at NCERT.

Regards

US and UK also refers to 6-8 as middle. As also many other places. Ur reaction! Savithri

It is getting very interesting...

still I think, middle, as a name is too generic compared to primary and secondary. Primary and Secondary can even be linked to growth phases, biologically.
