THE CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK
The Curriculum Framework outlines the pedagogical theories that underpin the Think Equal Programme, its framework for change, and the core components of the programme. Included in it are the core tenets, which are the foundation upon which the programme is built: the belief in the child as an autonomous, empowered being; the active, constructive learning environment; positive, factual language; the concept of Ubuntu; the process of narrative; and social cognition. The document also outlines the six ‘I Am’ precepts, and the 36 topic areas through which children participating in the programme will develop. The ‘I Am’ Precepts are: I Have A Strong Sense of Who I Am; I Am Able to Look After Myself; I Am Able to Look After Others; I Am Able to Communicate; I Am Able to Contribute and Create; I Am A Critical Thinker.
