The Geography section within The Curriculum Management and eLearning Department informs all stakeholders that the new Geography curriculum documents for Forms 1 and 2 are now available in the syllabi page of this website as well as on the curriculum website at: www.curriculum.gov.mt .
They will replace the current Form 1 and 2 state school syllabi as from September 2012.
The curriculum documentation consists of a revised handbook for the teaching of each subject, curriculum units with examples of teaching activities for each form together with another document listing the teaching objectives and learning outcomes that need to be covered in a year.
These documents promote constructivist approaches for effective learning and teaching, where learners are actively engaged in using a wide range of resources including communication technologies (ICT). They also provide teaching objectives along with pedagogical suggestions for good practice. They are meant to inspire teachers and are flexible enough to allow teachers develop their own ideas and activities in order to meet the different abilities of the students in their classrooms.
The objectives, teaching activities and outcomes of the curriculum units have been designed to accommodate teaching approaches that support the learning needs of all students. They encourage teachers to ensure that all students have the maximum opportunity to learn whatever their level.
