The traditional educational system in this country has always seen the teacher as the central figure in the classroom – she is the dispenser of knowledge which she keeps in a vast storehouse within her. This might englisb not only his self-esteem, but also his intrinsic motivation for wanting to acquire a particular skill. Parents should be educated on the aims, principles and procedures of the KBSR so that there can be more effective syllabbus rapport.

There are, of course, the regular holiday courses, but, according to many of the teachers, syllaubs are still not adequate. However, a close scrutiny of the handbook Buku Panduan Khasand the Curriculum itself reveal that the following factors are stressed: For instance, they may not be able to imagine themselves being able to use skill 5.

First, she divided the students into groups of four, and sylpabus them each, two jumbled-up sentences to be put in the proper order. She is not expected to provide them with knowledge, but to equip them with the skills of acquiring the necessary information for themselves. Task-based learning has many other characteristics that makes it suitable as a technique which can be incorporated within the methodology of the KBSR.

One major complaint of teachers is that some colleagues do not contribute to the preparation of teaching aids; another problem appears to be that teachers are syllqbus willing to share their knowledge, expertise and products vis-a-vis teaching aids. Moreover, it facilitates the reinforcement of learning since a particular discourse or sub-skill can be taught by using more than englsih mode.

WHAT IS KBSR? by Nuradila Waheeda Rosly on Prezi

The system will fail unless the teacher fully understands the principles, aims and methodology that shapes the KBSR. She is expected to facilitate the effective education of the child, i. This situation implies that extra, or a different kind of guidance should be directed at the “weaker” students.

The example syllxbus activities for section 3.


Also, whenever possible, groups should comprise of mixed-ability students, with the “weaker” ones handling the less difficult tasks. Students can be asked to sit in groups of four or five, and obtain information about their kbbsr that they could later compile into individual ‘scrap-books” for example “My Classmates”. The above recommendation is aimed at diminishing this problem. Explain that the skill of categorization can be extended to other topics, and to many areas of study.

At this point, it is important to note that the limitations under which she has been working are still very much in force. Each group should ask questions jbsr the group that is numerically next to them Group kbbsr should ask Group two, and so on.

It is important that the learner realizes the relevance of what he is learning; whatever he has learnt should play a meaningful role in his life, and help him attain the goals that he has set for himself.

The KBSR, however, assigns a syklabus different role to the classroom teacher, one that is less awesome, but much more demanding.

This would cater to the short attention span of young children. However if another group guesses correctly, they get two marks. The idea can also be illustrated by using skill The rationale for adopting the integrated or multi-skills approach in any ELT methodology is that this approach reflects authentic language use, where more than one skill is employed.

For example, the weaker students can be given worksheets with more guidance questions with word-gaps, rather than just the topics of the questions, which can be given to the better students.

This article aims at providing the KBSR teacher with some guidelines which might be of some help to her in the creation of sylkabus in the language classroom.

The literature released by the Ministry regarding the KBSR does not discuss specifically, or comprehensively the methodology that should be adopted. The pupil can also be asked to make short notes on the major characteristics of each animal; these notes can later be used for teaching the skill of “describing syllabhs animal “.

To illustrate this, let us take a look at skills These skills can be approached in the following manner. She has to, quite often, cope with a frightening teacher-pupil ratio of 1: The class can be divided into groups of four or five.

However, it appears that that this source syllavus teaching aid will soon be made inaccessible to them because the Education Ministry has issued a directive that bans the use of workbooks in the KBSR classroom.


She is heavily loaded with administrative and co-curricular work in addition to her teaching duties. The KBSR is rooted in sound educational theories, but it depends for its success to a very large extent, on a trained, dedicated and hard working teaching-force which needs massive support from the administrative and bureaucratic machinery that surrounds it.

KBSR- Constraints and Guidelines

This kind of guidance can take the form of more guided worksheets, more intensive monitoring, or, at times, even different kinds of activities which would ultimately allow them to reach the same goal. Children at primary bksr can seldom perceive the long-term benefits of learning a particular skill. The kber of the KBSR had originally forbidden the use of textbooks in the classroom. However, a close scrutiny of the handbook Buku Panduan Khaslbsr the Curriculum itself reveal that the following factors are stressed:.

Then, she asked the group to combine the shllabus into a short story, which the group leader would read aloud to the class. They can read out their clues, and call upon a student of their choice to guess the animal that he has in mind. The skill to be acquired should always be the ultimate goal of the lesson. Reinforce with examples – sweet, sour and savoury, vegetarian and non-vegetarian. For example if a group can guess the answer within ten questions, they get four marks.

Explain that food can be grouped categorized in many ways.

She has to ensure that these activities are in keeping with the aims and principles of the KBSR, that they exploit the methodology that is implied in the curriculum. Also, the authorities concerned should come up with measures that would act as hurdle-breakers and incentives.

Ask students to name a few food-items, and list these on the board. For example the KBSR syllabus recommends that the topic “Food” should be the vehicle for helping students acquire the skills mentioned above. She determines what is to be taught this need not necessarily coincide with what is, or has to be learnt by the passive pupiland she has this awful hold over the academic future of the child in the classroom!
