​CBSE 2017-18 Syllabus Class-9 : English - Communicative


CBSE Class-9 Syllabus 2017-18


Subject: English - Communicative

This is a two-year syllabus for classes IX and X. The CBSE has prepared a package for this
syllabus called Interact in English. It includes the following:
1. Main Course Book
2. Literature Reader
3. Work Book
4. Extended Reading Texts
Interact in English has been designed to develop the student’s communicative competence in English. Therefore, content selection is determined by the student’s present and future academic, social and professional needs. The overall aims of the course are:
(a) to enable the learner to communicate effectively and appropriately in real-life situations;
(b) to use English effectively for study purposes across the curriculum;
(c) to develop and integrate the use of the four language skills, i.e., listening, speaking, reading and writing;
(d) to develop interest in and appreciation of literature;
(e) to revise and reinforce structures already learnt.
Teachers may kindly keep the following in mind to develop these competencies:
Creativity: Students should be encouraged to think on their own and express their ideas using their experience, knowledge and imagination, rather than being text or teacher dependent. Self-monitoring: Students should be encouraged to monitor their progress, space out their learning, so they should be encouraged to see language not just as a functional tool, but as an important part of personal development and inculcation of values. Teaching/Testing
By the end of the course, students should be able to:
1. read silently at varying speeds depending on the purpose of reading;
2. adopt different strategies for different types of text, both literary and nonliterary;
3. recognise the organization of a text;
