Sub-strand: 1. Organization and structure of the curriculum
Organisation and structure of the music and dance syllabus: it is organised in years and for each year in three terms. Each term has strands and sub-strands.
Organisation: The curriculum is structured into four columns which cover Strands, Sub – strands, Content standards, Indicator and Exemplar. A unique annotation is used for numbering the learning indicators in the curriculum for the purpose of easy referencing.
Strands are the broad areas/sections of the Music and Dance content to be studied.
Sub-strands are the topics within each strand under which the content is organised.
Content standard refers to the pre-determined level of knowledge, skill and/or attitude that a learner attains by a set stage of education.
Indicator is a clear outcome or milestone that learners have to exhibit in each year to meet the content standard expectation. The indicators represent the minimum expected standard in a year.
Exemplar – support and guidance which clearly explains the expected outcomes of an indicator and suggests what teaching and learning activities could take to support the facilitators/teachers in the delivery of the curriculum.
