Elementary School Syllabus for Rajasthan Stat Govt School

The Department of School Education and Sanskrit, Government of Rajasthan and ICICI Foundation for
Inclusive Growth are collaborating on  a  six-year partnership  for  the ‘Rajasthan  State School and
Teacher Education Reform Programme.’  Aimed at comprehensive reform, the Programme covers the
crucial aspects of curriculum reform for both teacher and school education. With respect to school
education, the Programme includes developing new syllabi and textbooks  for all subjects at the primary  level and the English and Social Sciences for classes VI to VIII. The Programme has identified these as its focus areas, understanding the need for curricular revision in  the context of the changing educational discourse with the coming in of the NCF 2005, RtE Act 2009 and NCFTE 2009. The revision of the elementary level syllabi has been guided by National Curriculum Framework, 2005 This document emphasises that curriculum, syllabus and textbooks should enable the teacher to organize classroom experiences in consonance with the child’s nature and environment, and to provide an inclusive learning opportunities to all children.  It requires shift from  the  traditional teacher-centered learning approach to a learner-centred one,  encouraging inquiry and analysis, independent learning, situating and drawing from the social-cultural context of the child.    It also
emphasizes that syllabi and textbooks should keep the principle of equity and inclusion at the forefront, proactively break extant stereotypes to reflect sensitivity to gender and caste, peace, health and the needs of differently-abled children.
As a part of the agreement, SIERT, Rajasthan and ICICI Foundation joint teams embedded in the Unit
for Teacher Education initiated work on Syllabus development for  the elementary stage from the
month of May, 2011
