Central Board of Secondary Education is going to ask its students to work on a project based on North-East. In an open book assessment, a question may be based on the N-E issues. N-E may become the focus in the curriculum. CBSE will embrace numerous facets of N-E studies in CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) and will lay impetus on the areas in Heritage India Quiz.
CBSE had a meeting with Bezbaruah Committee in which the board had put forward a six-point strategy to sensitize students on the NE issues. In order to bring these issues in the curriculum, the board is planning to bring in such projects under Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation from classes 6th to 8th.
The board is planning to make use of open text book assessment for higher classes based on NE issues. This has been launched in the main subjects in 9th and 10th standards and in Geography, Biology and Economics in 11th standard.
Under CCE’s Formative Assessment, the teachers from the NE will be given training to plan assignments in social, local, political and economic contexts. The board has explicitly asked them to take account of freedom fighters from the region in these materials.
