CBSE Curriculum for Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Sociology 2018-19

SOCIOLOGY (Code No. 039) CBSE
2018-19
Rationale
Sociology is introduced as an elective subject at the senior secondary stage. The syllabus is designed to help learners to reflect on what they hear and see in the course of everyday life and develop a constructive attitude towards society in change; to equip a learner with concepts and theoretical skills for the purpose. The curriculum of Sociology at this stage should enable the learner to understand dynamics of human behaviour in all its complexities and manifestations. The learners of today need answers and explanations to satisfy the questions that arise in their minds while trying to understand social world. Therefore, there is a need to develop an analytical approach towards the social structure so that they can meaningfully participate in the process of social change. There is scope in the syllabus not only for interactive learning, based on exercises and project work but also for teachers and students
to jointly innovate new ways of learning.
·     Sociology studies society. The child’s familiarity with the society in which she /he lives in makes
the study of Sociology a double edged experience. At one level Sociology studies institutions such as family and kinship, class, caste and tribe religion and region- contexts with which children are familiar of, even if differentially. For India is a society which is varied both horizontally and vertically. The effort in the books will be to grapple overtly with this both as a source of strength and as a site for interrogation.
· Significantly the intellectual legacy of Sociology equips the discipline with a plural perspective that overtly engages with the need for defamiliarization, to unlearn and question the given. This interrogative and critical character of Sociology also makes it possible to understand both other cultures as well as relearn about one’s own culture.
· This plural perspective makes for an inbuilt richness and openness that not too many other disciplines in practice share. From its very inception Sociology has had mutually enriching and contesting traditions of an interpretative method that openly takes into account ‘subjectivity’ and causal explanations that pay due importance to establishing causal correspondences with considerable sophistication. Not surprisingly its field work tradition also entails large scale survey methods as well as a rich ethnographic tradition. Indeed Indian sociology, in particular has bridged this distinction between what has often been seen as distinct approaches of Sociology and social anthropology. The syllabus provides ample opportunity to make the child familiar with the excitement of field work as well as its theoretical significance for the very discipline of Sociology.
· The plural legacy of Sociology also enables a bird’s eye view and a worm’s eye view of the society the child lives in. This is particularly true today when the local is inextricably defined and shaped by macro global processes.
· The syllabus proceeds with the assumption that gender as an organizing principle of society cannot be treated as an add on topic but is fundamental to the manner that all chapters shall be dealt with.
· The chapters shall seek for a child centric approach that makes it possible to connect the lived reality of children with social structures and social processes that Sociology studies.
· A conscious effort will be made to build into the chapters a scope for exploration of society that makes learning a process of discovery. A way towards this is to deal with sociological concepts not as givens but a product of societal actions humanly constructed and therefore open to
questioning.
Objectives
·    To enable learners to relate classroom teaching to their outside environment.
·     To introduce them to the basic concepts of Sociology that would enable them to observe and interpret social life.
·     To be aware of the complexity of social processes.
·     To appreciate diversity in Indian society and the world at large.
·    To build the capacity of students to understand and analyze the changes in contemporary Indian society.

Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Psychology 2018-19

CBSE Curriculum for Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Psychology 2018-19

24. CBSE PSYCHOLOGY (Code No. 037)
Psychology is introduced as an elective subject at the higher secondary stage of school education. As a
discipline, psychology specializes in the study of experiences, behaviours, and mental processes of human beings within a socio-cultural historical context. This course purports to introduce the learners to the basic ideas, principles, and methods in Psychology. The emphasis is to create interest and exposure needed by learners to develop their own knowledge base and understanding.
The course deals with psychological knowledge and practices which are contextually rooted. It emphasizes
the complexity of behavioural processes and discourages simplistic cause-effect thinking. This is pursued by encouraging critical reasoning, allowing students to appreciate the role of cultural factors in behaviour, and illustrating how biology and experiences shape behaviour.
It  is  suggested  that  the  teaching  –  learning  processes  should  involve  students  in  evolving  their  own
understanding, therefore, teaching of Psychology should be based on the use of case studies, narratives, experiential exercises, analysis of common everyday experiences, etc.
Objectives:
·     To develop appreciation about human mind and behaviour in the context of learners’ immediate society and environment.
·     To develop  in  learners  an appreciation  of  the  nature  of psychological knowledge  and  its application to various aspects of life.
·     To enable learners to become perceptive, socially aware and self-reflective.
·     To facilitate students’ quest for personal growth and effectiveness, and to enable them to become responsive and responsible citizens.

CBSE Curriculum for Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Political Science 2018-19

22. POLITICAL SCIENCE (Code No. 028) CBSE
(2018-19)
Rationale
At the senior secondary level students who opt Political Science are given an opportunity to get introduced to the diverse concerns of a Political Scientist. At this level there is a need to enable students to engage with political processes that surround them and provide them with an understanding of the historical context that has shaped the present. The different courses introduce the students to the various streams of the discipline of Political Science: Political Theory, Indian Politics and International Politics. Concerns of the other two streams – Comparative Politics and Public Administration- are accommodated at different places in these courses. In introducing these streams, special care has been taken not to burden the students with the current jargon of the discipline. The basic idea here is to lay the foundations for a serious engagement
with the discipline at the under graduation stage.
Objectives:

·   Analyse the ways in which the provisions of the Constitution have worked in real political life.
Political Theory

·   Encourage the students to analyse any unexamined prejudices that one may have inherited.
Contemporary World Politics
·   Enable the students to expand their horizons beyond India and make sense of the political map of contemporary world.
·   Familiarise the students with some of the key political events and processes in the post cold war era.
·   Equip students to be conscious of the way in which global events and processes shape our everyday lives.
·   Strengthen their capacity for political analysis by thinking of contemporary developments in a historical perspective.
Politics in India after Independence

·   Develop skills of political analysis through an understanding of events and processes of recent history.
·   Develop their capacity to link macro processes with micro situations and their own life.
·   Encourage the students to take a historical perspective of making sense of contemporary India.

Rationale
The National Cadet Corps (NCC) came into existence on 16 July 1948 under an act of Parliament. Its motto
“Unity and Discipline” has guided the NCC in its long standing effort to mould young volunteers into disciplined and responsible young citizens of India. Over the years, in response to the evolving environment, the NCC’s  initial military  orientation has been  augmented by including  aspects of  social service and
adventure training.
India is on a high growth trajectory. The future belongs to its youth which comprises 55% of the population.
If we are to fully realize our potential we must develop training infrastructure that can instil vigour in the young and bolster their confidence whilst retaining a sense of purpose, honour and patriotic service. The NCC ideal “Empowerment of Youth”, reflects our commitment to work for a healthy, prosperous and strong
India.
Objectives:
·     Train volunteer youth to become confident, committed and competent leaders in all walks of life.
·     Enhance awareness levels of cadets to become empowered and responsible citizens of the country.
·     Provide opportunities and encourage cadets to enrich their knowledge, develop communication skills and build character.
·     Conduct social and community development programmes, to educate and make constructive contributions towards society.
·     Undertake adventure activities to hone leadership qualities and risk taking abilities.
·     Provide a platform to launch ‘Good Will Ambassadors’ to project the image of the country overseas.
·     Conduct military training to develop awareness to develop awareness about Armed Forces,  leadership skills and military values and thus, provide an environment to motivate cadets to join the Armed Forces

UNIT–6: PRODUCTION SKILLS      CBSE                                                                          40 Periods
Project – Non-Fiction: Students will conceive, write, direct and edit a non-fiction film project of 3-5 minutes duration.
Guidelines
In this, they will follow the film making process of going through the pre-production, production and post-production process. The idea will be submitted to the teacher first. It shall be discussed and approved. It is only after that, the student can undertake to do further research and writing of the script. The script shall be submitted along with the shooting schedule, the same will be approved by teacher and only after the clearance from the teacher will the shooting take place. Students will complete the project on video tape and submit it along as a video tape as well as in the DVD format with the docket containing all the paper work done by them.
Subjects of the films should be suitable for the audience of their own age group.
Social issues like Gender issues, Environmental issues, Education, Health, Livelihood, Rights on disability, Access, Road Safety, documentaries on Historical monuments, Art and Craft can be chosen. Initial research is very important with regard to pre-production and production. Students must understand and read about media ethics and understand the sensitivity of the issue concerned. Students must take up issues which they closely relate to in their everyday lives and are able to work on within their academic concerns.
Themes to illustrate facets of other arts could also be chosen. Issues relating to media could also be a domain. Students must understand their roots and cultural heritage which surrounds them. It is part of what they are. This consists of not just historical monuments; it surpasses subjects like rituals, traditional medicinal practices, folklore and anecdotes from their grandparents, about the city they live in, various performing arts and more.
Portraits of personalities with respect to their contribution to life may also be chosen. People who have made a difference within their community, their role models, people they look up to, those who inspire them or have encouraged them, they could be their relative, teacher, a household help or anyone known to them.
Basic Handycam video cameras and basic editing software like Adobe Premier or Windows Movie maker should suffice. Technical quality is important, but technological sophistication by itself will not carry much weight, as the purpose is to judge the overall programme making ability.
The preparation is as important as the product and will carry half the percentage in the total assessment of the project.
The time limit of 3-5 minutes is to be strictly observed. Anything drastically more or less in duration will negatively affect the assessment.
These guidelines should be very clearly explained to the students and there should be no basic doubts about the approach in their minds.
UNIT–7: PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT                                                                         40 Periods
PORTFOLIO ASSESSMENT AND APPRENTICESHIP
Special features of Assessment
The Portfolio will consist of a compilation of all written submissions over the duration of the course. It is the sum total of the creative work executed by the student over the year. The Portfolio will consist of all written submissions over the duration of the course. The assignments
would include written project work and production output will be collected. The submission would
include  both  the  original  and  improved  versions  of  assigned  tasks  reflective  of  gradual
improvement.
Aims of the exercise of Portfolio are-
To create a desire in the student to go beyond the text and classroom learning To inculcate in the student the spirit of research
To offer the scope for imaginative thinking To develop the power of interpretation
To imbibe the notions of subjectivity and objectivity
Objectives of the exercise of Portfolio are –
The student begins to think independently and critically about the subject. The student learns to develop his/her own themes.
The student learns to systematically gather facts and sift the data. The student learns to use the data in a coherent and logical manner.
The student learns to follow one’s imagination to create an original work.
The student learns the difference between analyzing someone else’s work and creating one’s own.
The student learns to develop distinct creative approaches to fiction and non-fiction. The student learns to conceive and execute ideas that are medium specific.
The student learns to identify upon his/her own strengths and weaknesses.
Assessment of the Portfolio: The basic guideline for assessment of the Portfolio is to judge the
student’s individual growth along the aims and objectives stated above. Both quality and quantity of the work done cumulatively should receive equal consideration.
10 marks have been allotted for the Portfolio.
Apprentice Program: All students who take this course will have to mandatorily take one week
intensive training at an institution which has been approved by CBSE. The week long intensive training will also have a component of project work which will be assessed by the examiners of the institution.
Guidelines for teacher training preamble – The subject Mass Media Studies is new and a broad- spectrum one. Hence there are no specialized teachers available at the inception to teach the course. The teachers, who will have the initiative to undertake the responsibility of teaching, themselves would belong to various backgrounds. So the trainers are dealing with heterogeneous groups as far as the educational background of the members of the group are concerned. These are the factors that have been taken into account while planning the content and teaching
strategy. These are not to be considered as limiting factors, but important details.
Content: The reader of the course would form the main reference around which the course would
be structured. It will be more of participatory workshop than a lecture dominant programme.
Aims
To explain the basic concept and key areas of the curriculum
To demonstrate the use of available resources and to create the new ones
To demonstrate the various approaches such as case study, analysis, research, creation of a product from an abstract idea and more
To correlate the experience of various media as different dimensions of social life
To bring awareness of the fact that mass media offers scope to a variety of talents and skills
Objectives
After the successful completion of the course the teachers should be able to: Understand the ideas behind each unit and their interrelationship
Locate the teaching resources within the familiar areas of information Guide the students to creatively execute their ideas
Make the students realize the different realities of the media Develop a comprehensive perspective on mass media
Induce the students to think positively about choosing a career in mass media

Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Legal Studies 2018-19

CBSE Curriculum for Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Legal Studies 2018-19

37. LEGAL STUDIES CBSE
(Code No. 074)
Rationale
The Latin maxim ignorantia juris neminem excusat, in plain, which reads as ‘ignorance of law is not an
excuse’. This is one of the age old principles followed under the Roman Law and even in our own Common Law. If every person of discretion is to know what law is, an effort to teach law outside the remit of a
professional law school may have significant social benefits.
Law is a subject which has been traditionally taught in Universities for almost eight centuries. Learning law
outside the settings of a professional law school has a number of perceived benefits. Some familiarity with law enhances one’s understanding of public affairs and an awareness of one’s entitlements and duties as a citizen. It may also be helpful in eliminating some of the mistaken notions about law and some of the inveterate prejudices about law, lawyers and the legal system as such. Another advantage is that an understanding of law can undoubtedly encourage talented students to pursue a career in law – an objective
which is laudable in its own right.
The pitfalls of learning law outside the settings of a professional school are rooted in two key assumptions:
(1) law is too vast and complicated to be taught in a non-professional setting; (2) the lack of professional trainers and experienced teachers could lead to incorrect appreciation and understanding of law. If an understanding of law is mis-formed or ill-formed as some academicians think, it may require greater efforts to unlearn whatever was learnt earlier. Both these criticisms have attracted detailed scrutiny, but at least a
few countries have introduced law at the High School level.
The experience of countries that have introduced law has been by and large optimistic. The Central Board of
Secondary Education is introducing Legal Studies at the Class XI level. The proposal is to introduce one module in Class XI and a second module in Class XII.
Objectives
·     To provide a background of the evolution of the Indian legal system in a short and concise form.
· To focus on the applicability of justice, equity and good conscience and more importantly the development of Common Law system in India.
· To provide exposure on various systems of law such as Common Law, Civil Law, Hindu Law, Islamic Law etc.
· To develop an understanding of the essential features of the Indian Constitution, including the role and importance of Fundamental Rights, Separation of Powers, Structure and operation of Courts, concept of precedent in judicial functioning, the process of legislation, basic principles of statutory interpretation, etc
· To deal with principles of practical utility such as the concept of Rule of Law, principles of justice, differences between criminal and civil cases, the concept of crime and the fundamental theories of punishment, rights available to the accused at various stages of the criminal investigative process, or the key components of Human Rights, etc.
·     To understand the fundamental concept and subject matter of property, contract and tort.
· To understand the rudimentary aspects of contract law such as formation of contract, terms and conditions, discharge, etc.
·     To enables students to form an understanding of rights and duties and various categories of liability
principles which form the bedrock for an understanding of Law.

Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India 2018-19

CBSE Curriculum for Senior School Certificate Examination (XI-XII) Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India 2018-19

36. KNOWLEDGE TRADITIONS AND PRACTICES OF INDIA CBSE
(Code No. 073)
Rationale
The “Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India” has been introduced as an elective subject at the Senior
Secondary level w.e.f. 2012-2013 in class XI as a pilot and introduced in all schools w.e.f. 2013 in classes XI and XII. After ten years of general education, students branch out at the beginning of this stage and are exposed to the rigours of the various disciplines for the first time. This is the stage when they are made to start reflecting over their future life and decide a career. At this point, they also become aware of certain knowledge traditions and practices of India that are being followed in their families and society around them but few students get an opportunity to lay hands on the vast treasure of knowledge that lies hidden in the
form of literature or books.
This course aims at providing a broad overview of Indian thought in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary
mode. It would not seek to impart masses of data, but would highlight concepts and major achievements while engaging the student with a sense of exploration and discovery. It would be an introductory course so that students who take this course are prepared for a related field in higher studies in the universities. The course will cultivate critical appreciation of the thought content and provide insights relevant for promoting cognitive ability, health and well-being, good governance, aesthetic appreciation, right values and appropriate  worldview.  The  course  will  therefore  comprehensively  deal  with  all-round  personality
development of the students and increase their knowledge about their country.
Concept of the Course
The knowledge traditions of India are continuous and cumulative. They are textual and exegetical traditions
in different areas of thought and experience: philosophy, medicine, grammar, architecture, geography, literary theory, polity and political economy, logic, astronomy and mathematics, military science, metallurgy, agriculture, mining and gemmology, and shipbuilding, among others. Concepts and technical vocabularies of these traditions are still a part of the thinking and the languages of modern India.
The tradition is also non-egocentric. The 5th-century philosopher of language, Bhartrihari, states in his
Vakyapadiya, a cardinal principle of knowledge constitution: “The intellect acquires critical acumen by familiarity with different traditions. How much does one really understand by merely following one’s own reasoning only?” (Bhartrihari, Vakyapadiya, II.484). The traditions are therefore, intrinsically polycentric; Indian thinkers have constantly engaged in internal debate and dialogue and have also interacted with traditions outside India.
Aims and Objectives of the course:
Students will be able to:
l       get familiar with Indian thought in different disciplines.
l       get familiar with major Indian thinkers in different disciplines.
l       get familiar with the primary texts of Indian thought through an organized study of short extracts in translation of those texts.
l develop a better appreciation and understanding of not only the Knowledge Traditions and Practices of India but also of many contemporary questions and issues that they handle in their course work in related disciplines.
l       enhance self awareness and self-esteem.
Specific aims:
Students will be able to:
l       get familiar with the nature of Indian texts.
l       read primary texts from various sources and will be able to collect information and develop their critical abilities.
l       relate the knowledge to present context.
l       develop positive attitude towards Indian thoughts and traditions.
l       compare and contrast views given in the units and develop interest in the authentic texts.
l       internalise the given knowledge and pursue it further in their courses of studies by gathering more information about thinkers and texts.
l       interpret and analyse texts of different kinds and express it in their own language.
l       understand the contribution of Indian mind in various fields.
l       relate ideas of various disciplines with western thought they are otherwise introduced to in their course work.
l       develop a wider understanding of how all knowledge is ultimately interrelated.
l       read and know the history of Indian literatures.
l       pursue further study in related fields.
l       paraphrase the ideas of primary text in English or Hindi.
