As per the Government’s notification, Schools in Punjab can only use textbooks which have been aligned with Single National Curriculum and have their respective No Objection Certificates (NOCs) issued by Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB).
Oxford University Press (OUP) will only entertain textbook orders in or for Punjab for Titles for which the requisite NOCs have been obtained; this needs to be ensured by the Purchaser and for which OUP can take no responsibility.
Using reflective, exploratory and collaborative methods, the course examines the language-learning applications of each skills-cluster. It also focuses on how Global Skills can be assessed and suggests strategies for creating a Global Skills learning environment -one that benefits both students and teacher. Teachers of all contexts will find practical suggestions and workable strategies for promoting Global Skills within the English lesson, without needing to overhaul either the curriculum or the teaching timetable.
