New Primary School Syllabus.
Ministry of Education and Culture (Trinidad and Tobago).
This official syllabus of Trinidad and Tobago's primary schools gives detailed guidelines on the teaching objectives of each curriculum area and how these can best be realized, as well as descriptions of the subject matter. The curriculum is divided into three levels: Level I (5- to 7-year-olds), Level II (7- to 9-year-olds) and Level III (10+- to 11+-year-olds). Curriculum areas covered are language arts (reading and writing, standard English); mathematics; social studies, including moral and social education; general science; nutrition education; physical education; and creative arts (including creative writing, arts and crafts, and music and drama). Readings are suggested for each area. In addition, an outline of the linguistic structure of Trinidadian is given to make teachers of English aware of problems faced by the children learning English as a second language. (MS)
