Social Science Programme
They supported teaching in schools and helped create an environment in the community that was receptive to new ideas and innovations in education. They also highlighted contemporary socio-political issues of concern, generating a debate on the use of science and technology for development, the objective being to foster scientific temper among the people.
The point was to move away from mere description of facts, the textbooks developed under the Social Science Programme give space to real life experiences of people from many walks of life and raise a range of issues and themes that can be examined in depth. The Science and Social Science packages will make the learning of these subjects a joyful and insightful experience for any middle school child.
