Yen Bai has decided to issue a set of new texbook selection criteria for general education institutions across the northern province in 2020-2021 academic year.
Teachers at Phuc Son primary school in Nghia Lo town, Yen Bai province, study sample textbooks.
The set includes two criteria and 12 standards. Accordingly, the content of textbooks should be consistent with the economic, cultural, historical and geographical characteristics of localities and residential communities.
Questions, exercises, and references in textbooks should be flexibly designed to match the local reality.
The books should feature such topics as vocational training, local education, environmental protection, sex education, prevention of child abuse and school violence, natural disasters prevention and climate change adaptation, traffic safety, self-study and lifelong learning.
The content should be divided into various topics, which are open for discussions and enable teachers to be flexible in designing practical lessons.
It should also help activate students’ creative and independent thinking as well as enable them to apply their knowledge into practice.
Supplementary books and online documents are needed to support teachers and managers to use appropriate aid equipment, illustrative images and clips.
