CBSE Class-11 Syllabus 2019-20 (Chemistry)

CBSE-CLASS-11-LOGO



CBSE Class-11 Syllabus 2019-20 (Chemistry)



Rationale :

Higher Secondary is the most crucial stage of school education because at this juncture specialized discipline based, content -oriented courses are introduced. Students reach this stage after 10 years of general education and opt for Chemistry with a purpose of pursuing their career in basic sciences or professional courses like medicine, engineering, technology and other applied areas. Therefore, there is a need to provide learners with sufficient conceptual background of Chemistry, which will make them competent to meet the challenges of academic and professional courses after the senior secondary stage.
The new and updated curriculum is based on disciplinary approach with rigour and depth taking care that the syllabus is not heavy and at the same time it is comparable to the international level. The knowledge related to the subject of Chemistry has undergone tremendous changes during the past one decade. Many new areas like synthetic materials, bio -molecules, natural resources, industrial chemistry are coming in a big way and deserve to be an integral part of chemistry syllabus at senior secondary stage. At international level, new formulations and nomenclature of elements and compounds, symbols and units of physical quantities floated by scientific bodies like IUPAC and CGPM are of immense importance and need to be incorporated in the updated syllabus. The revised syllabus takes care of all these aspects. Greater emphasis has been laid on use of new nomenclature, symbols and formulations, teaching of fundamental concepts, application of concepts in chemistry to industry/ technology, logical sequencing of units, removal of obsolete content and repetition, etc.

Objectives :

The curriculum of Chemistry at Senior Secondary Stage aims to:

  • promote understanding of basic facts and concepts in chemistry while retaining the excitement of chemistry.
  • make students capable of studying chemistry in academic and professional courses (such as medicine, engineering, technology) at tertiary level.
  • expose the students to various emerging new areas of chemistry and apprise them with their relevance in future studies and their application in various spheres of chemical sciences and technology.
  • equip students to face various challenges related to health, nutrition, environment, population,weather, industries and agriculture.
  • develop problem solving skills in students.
  • expose the students to different processes used in industries and their technological applications. 
  • apprise students with interface of chemistry with other disciplines of science such as physics, biology, geology, engineering etc.
  • acquaint students with different aspects of chemistry used in daily life.
  • develop an interest in students to study chemistry as a discipline.
  • integrate life skills and values in the context of chemistry

CBSE Class-9 Syllabus 2019-20 (Painting)

CBSE-CLASS-9-LOGO



CBSE Class-9 Syllabus 2019-20 (Painting)



Syllabus :

"The secondary stage is apt for refining aesthetic sensibilities and promoting social values through projects on conservation of the natural and cultural heritage and through opportunities for studying Indian culture, working with artists/artisans of the community, organizing festivals and celebrations of the community at large, display of physical environment and surrounding landscape and their exploration; projects to promote creative expression and exhibition of works in visual and verbal forms" is one of the recommendations of the National Curriculum Framework 2005.

This is the stage where students have already gained the skill of drawing and painting to an extent to create and communicate through simple images and colours. The focus of the painting curriculum should be to provide students with an opportunity to explore natural and man made objects, situations and subjects to learn about the elements and principles of painting while enjoying their creative expression through different mediums and 
techniques.
The course consists of (i) Painting theory and (ii) Painting practicals. Theory and Practice are co-related and complement each other by application of medium and technique. Theory can make students understand the medium they are practicing with all its beauty and meaning. Theory provides knowledge and enhances the value of the practical. 

Learning outcomes:

Students after studying 'Painting' as additional subject will be able to:
- Enjoy paintings as a medium of expressions
- Appreciate the beauty in lines, forms and colours
- Know the fundamentals of Painting (Elements and Principles) and apply them in their creations.
- Use painting tools and materials appropriately.
- Apply pencil colours, oil pastels, poster colours, water colours etc. as a painting medium.
- Differentiate between 'opaque' and 'transparent' colours as a technique.
- Refine memory and observation power through study / still life and painting composition.
- Maintain his/her painting tools, materials appropriately.
- Display his/her paintings aesthetically and will learn to store them.
- Apply the artistic skills of composition in day-to-day life at home and in the school.

Suggested Teaching Learning Strategies - IX :

CBSE Class-10 Syllabus 2019-20 (Painting)



Syllabus :

"The secondary stage is apt for refining aesthetic sensibilities and promoting social values through projects on conservation of the natural and cultural heritage and through opportunities for studying Indian culture, working with artists/artisans of the community, organizing festivals and celebrations of the community at large, display of physical environment and surrounding landscape and their exploration; projects to promote creative expression and exhibition of works in visual and verbal forms" is one of the recommendations of the National Curriculum Framework 2005.

This is the stage where students have already gained the skill of drawing and painting to an extent to create and communicate through simple images and colours. The focus of the painting curriculum should be to provide students with an opportunity to explore natural and man made objects, situations and subjects to learn about the elements and principles of painting while enjoying their creative expression through different mediums and 
techniques.
The course consists of (i) Painting theory and (ii) Painting practicals. Theory and Practice are co-related and complement each other by application of medium and technique. Theory can make students understand the medium they are practicing with all its beauty and meaning. Theory provides knowledge and enhances the value of the practical. 

Learning outcomes:

Students after studying 'Painting' as additional subject will be able to:
- Enjoy paintings as a medium of expressions
- Appreciate the beauty in lines, forms and colours
- Know the fundamentals of Painting (Elements and Principles) and apply them in their creations.
- Use painting tools and materials appropriately.
- Apply pencil colours, oil pastels, poster colours, water colours etc. as a painting medium.
- Differentiate between 'opaque' and 'transparent' colours as a technique.
- Refine memory and observation power through study / still life and painting composition.
- Maintain his/her painting tools, materials appropriately.
- Display his/her paintings aesthetically and will learn to store them.
- Apply the artistic skills of composition in day-to-day life at home and in the school.

CBSE Class-11 Syllabus 2019-20 (English Elective)

CBSE-CLASS-11-LOGO



CBSE Class-11 Syllabus 2019-20 (English Elective)



Background

The course is intended to give students a high level of competence in English with an emphasis on the study of literary texts. The course will provide extensive exposure to a variety of rich texts of world literature as well as Indian writings in English, including classics; develop sensitivity to the creative and imaginative use of English and give them a taste for reading with delight and discernment. The course is primarily designed to equip the students to pursue higher studies in English literature and English language at the college level.

Objectives

The general objectives at this stage are:

i) to provide extensive exposure to a variety of writings in English, including some classics to develop sensitivity to literary and creative uses of the language.
ii) to further expand the learners' vocabulary resources through the use of dictionary, thesaurus and encyclopaedia.
iii) to develop a taste for reading with discernment and delight.
iv) to critically examine a text and comment on different aspects.
v) to develop proficiency in English both in receptive and productive skills.
At the end of this course, the learner
i) grasps the global meaning of the text, its gist and understands how its theme and sub-themes relate.
ii) relates to the details provided in the text, for example, how the details support a generalization or the conclusion either by classification or by contrast and comparison.
iii) comprehends details, locates and identifies facts, arguments, logical relationships, generalization, conclusion, in the texts.
iv) draws inferences, supplies missing details, predicts outcomes, grasps the significance of particular details and interprets texts.
v) assesses and analyzes the point of view of the author.
vi) infers the meanings of words and phrases from the context; differentiates between apparent synonyms.
vii) appreciates stylistic nuances, the lexical structure; its literal and figurative uses and analyses a variety of texts.
viii) identifies different styles of writing like humorous, satirical, contemplative, ironical and burlesque.
ix) can produce text-based writing (writing in response to questions or tasks based on prescribed as well as 'unseen' texts)
x) develops the advanced skills of reasoning, inferring, analysing, evaluating and creating.
xi) develops familiarity with the poetic uses of language including features of the language through which artistic effect is achieved.

Methods and Techniques

The techniques used for teaching should promote habits of self-learning and reduce dependence on the teacher. The multi-skill, learner-centred, activity-based approach already recommended for the previous stages of education, is still in place, though it will be used in such a way that silent reading of prescribed selected texts for comprehension will receive greater focus as one of the activities. Learners will be trained to read independently and intelligently, interacting actively with texts and other reference materials (dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia, etc.) where necessary. Some pre-reading activity will generally be required, and course books suggest those activities. The reading of texts should be followed by post reading activities. It is important to remember that every text can generate different reading strategies. Students should be encouraged to interpret texts in different ways, understand the views of others and present their views on a literary text. Some projects may be assigned to students from time to time, for instance, students may be asked to put together a few literary pieces on a given theme.

Objectives :

The general objectives at this stage are to:
• listen and comprehend live as well as record in writing oral presentations on a variety of topics
• develop greater confidence and proficiency in the use of language skills necessary for social and academic purpose to participate in group discussions, interviews by making short oral presentation on given topics
• perceive the overall meaning and organisation of the text (i.e., the relationships of the different "chunks" in the text to each other
• identify the central/main point and supporting details, etc., to build communicative competence in various registers of English
• promote advanced language skills with an aim to develop the skills of reasoning, drawing inferences, etc. through meaningful activities
• translate texts from mother tongue(s) into English and vice versa
• develop ability and knowledge required in order to engage in independent reflection and enquiry
At the end of this stage learners will be able to do the following:
• read and comprehend extended texts (prescribed and non-prescribed) in the following genres: science fiction, drama, poetry, biography, autobiography, travel and sports literature, etc.
• text-based writing (i.e., writing in response to questions or tasks based on prescribed or unseen texts) understand and respond to lectures, speeches, etc.
• write expository / argumentative essays, explaining or developing a topic, arguing a case, etc. write formal/informal letters and applications for different purposes
• write items related to the workplace (minutes, memoranda, notices, summaries,reports etc.
• filling up of forms, preparing CV, e-mail messages., making notes from reference materials, recorded talks etc.
