Curriculum Articulation

Curriculum articulation refers to the iterative and incremental development of learning objectives across different key stages.  In English language education, sound curriculum planning aligns knowledge, skills, attitudes and values with learning outcomes, assessment and progression explicit for both teachers and students.  Articulating and aligning the curriculum is a process of making visible the connections among various learning experiences with increasing breadth and depth. In the building of knowledge and skills, teachers and students need to be aware of  how learning is connected and extended from one stage to another along a sequential and cumulative path. 

In order to enable learning in depth and provide students with more diverse opportunity to learn, the NET Section has initiated a number of school projects and learning activities in the past few years.  For instance, the ‘Seed’ projects on KS2 – KS3 curriculum interface, Development of Text Sets (DTS) and Critical Literacy (CR&W)* have been focusing on the continuity and progression in English language learning across KS1 to KS4.  Our project teams collaborate with frontline teachers working in different primary and secondary school contexts.  Other professional development activities such as cluster meetings, workshops and onsite school support have been provided for local schools. The objective is to promote better understanding of curriculum articulation through our collaboration and communication with English teachers on refining pedagogical practices, designing meaningful learning activities and developing school-based resources.
