A Critique on the Secondary School Chinese Language Curriculum Outline

方鏡熹(Kan-Hay FONG)




The new secondary school Chinese Language curriculum outline, revised by the Education Department in June 1988, will be implemented in 1991. The curriculum consists of three parts: Teaching objective, teaching period, teaching domain. In setting the new teaching objective, there is greater emphasis on students' moral character development and on their knowledge of Chinese culture. This is most appropriate. However, with respect to the part on teaching domain, new ideas are few, and much re-consideration is needed. Suggestions are made in regard to this.
