Curriculum - FRAMEWORKS
WHAT IS A FRAMEWORK?
A Framework In the Adventist secondary school context, a ‘framework’ is a statement of values and principles that guide curriculum development. These principles are derived from Adventist educational philosophy which states important ideas about what Seventh-day Adventists consider to be real, true and good. A framework is also a practical document intended to help teachers sequence and integrate the various elements of the planning process as they create a summary of a unit or topic. The framework is not a syllabus. The framework is not designed to do the job of a textbook. Although it contains lists of outcomes, values, issues and teaching ideas, the main emphasis is on relating values and faith to teaching topics and units. Objectives of the Framework 1. One objective of the framework is to show how valuing, thinking and other learning skills can be taught form a Christian viewpoint. The Adventist philosophy of art influences this process. 2. A second objective is to provide some examples of how this can be done. The framework is therefore organised as a resource bank of ideas for subject planning. It provides ideas, issues, values and value teaching activities of art, so it is intended to be a useful planning guide rather than an exhaustive list of "musts". The framework has three target audiences:-
All art teachers in Adventist secondary schools.
Principals and administrators in the Adventist educational system.
Government authorities who want to see that there is a distinctive Adventist curriculum emphasis.
