STRUCTURE OF THE CURRICULUM
For levels 1 & 2:
The curriculum is designed as 160 x ½ – hour lesson plans to cater for a maximum of 40 weeks of school term time. The design is for a total of 2 hours of teaching per week – 4 half hour lessons per week. The lessons are grouped into specific areas of learning which are designed to be taught in a particular sequence.
We will provide assessment tools, with detailed advice and instructions for how to administer the assessment tests. It is vital for the programme’s success that we carry out monitoring and evaluation of outcomes of this new subject. We will provide all the pilot schools with the final study results and metrics. We will also provide THINK EQUAL certificates for all children who take part in the THINK EQUAL programme.
A country/state-specific Curriculum (a “CSC”) will be adapted from the THINK EQUAL Global Curriculum by a country/state/province-constituted committee comprised of the required expertise. These will be set up by the Education Boards of each country in collaboration with THINK EQUAL. Apart from translation into a country’s specific language/s, each CSC will require cultural fluency and therefore will be handled at a local level to ensure integration of culturally specific approaches in ‘translating’ the ESC into a local/regional framework.
