NCERT Forms 35-Member Committee for Developing Syllabi and Teaching-Learning Material

The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has formed a 35-member committee to develop Syllabi and Teaching-Learning Material for classes 6 to 12.

The Curricular Area Group (CAG): Social Science (including History, Geography, Political Science, Sociology, and Psychology) has been formed in continuation of another 19-member National Syllabus and Teaching Learning Material Committee (NSTC) that was notified in July to finalize the curriculum, textbooks, and learning material for these classes, according to NCERT.

NSTC was also expected to have at least 11 CAGs in various subject domains. It has so far established CAGs for innovative pedagogy and teaching learning materials, IKS, and social science.

“This Group will also coordinate with the Preparatory Stage CAG, as well as with other CAGs as required, to ensure continuity with Grades 3-5, interdisciplinarity among subjects, and the integration of cross-cutting themes in Social Science,” the NCERT notification stated.

“Given the need for vertical and horizontal linkages and integration across disciplines in Social Sciences, both the CAGs- Social Science and Economics will ensure this integration by sharing and discussing drafts of material prepared with each other,” it added.

Sanjeev Sanyal, a member of India’s Economic Advisory Council, and Banabina Brahma, Associate Professor of History at Kokrajhar Government College in Assam, were also members of the committee. Srinivas, Chairman of the Centre for Policy Studies in Chennai, Mazhar Asif, Centre of Persian and Central Asian Studies, JNU, Heeraman Tiwari, Professor and Chairperson, Centre for Historical Studies, School of Social Sciences, JNU, Javaid Iqbal Bhat, Assistant Professor, Post Graduate Department of English, University of Kashmir, and Commodore Dr.Odakkal Johnson (Retd.), Former Director, Maritime History Society, are among those who have participated.

“The deadline for submitting Handbooks for Teachers to NSTC and NCERT is February 25, 2024,” according to the notification.

The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for school education has already been released by NCERT, and the NSTC is now working on finalizing the textbook content.

The NCERT is revising the school curriculum in accordance with the 2020 National Education Policy (NEP).
