Detailed Syllabus for English

       
Details   
   
Aim   
   
To enable students to    
   
Develop the ability to use English effectively for the purpose of practical communication in a variety of second language situations.   
   
Form a sound base for the skills required to use English as a medium of communication.   
   
Develop and enhance the basic language   learning skills of LSRW.   
   
Encourage students to develop the habit of   self study.   
   
Enable students to understand and respond   appropriately to what they listen, read and experience.   
   
Domain   
   
1. Listening
   
2. Speaking
   
3. Reading
   
4. Writing   
   
1 & 2   
   
Listening and Speaking   (Oral/Aural Communication)   
All students should be able to:

understand and convey simple and detailed information.

present facts, ideas or opinions in a sequence.

make relevant comments on what is heard, seen or read;.

describe experience (s) in simple terms and express intelligibly what is thought or imagined.

respond appropriately in a particular situation. speak audibly with appropriate tone, intonation and pace.

Note: The oral/ aural communication skills will be tested by the schools under the scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. Oral interviews will be used to test the skills.

   
3   
   
Reading   
   
All the students should be able to:
   
    
Demonstrate understanding of words/phrases within short        texts; scan to extract specific information from texts (at least from        the texts of textbooks prescribed and organise the relevant information        and present it in a logical manner/ given format.
    
Only a few tasks shall be set to test the reading skills.        The skills of reading and writing shall be tested in an integrated        manner to reflect the way in which language is actually used. This is to        allow writing tasks to be stimulated by authentic reading texts rather        than seeing the two activities as diverse elements. However a few tasks        may be set to test the reading skills exclusively      
   
4   
   
Writing   
   
All the students should be able to:
   
    
Carry out simple writing tasks, such as, writing an essay,        short letters, short stories, paragraphs, dialogues and short messages.        They should be able to write coherently and cohesively using suitable        linkers. They should exhibit a sense of awareness of the audience and        should be able to use vocabulary appropriately. They should also be able        to use suitable formats for writing different kinds of writings and make        them as reader friendly as possible.
    
The objective is to make students proficient and LSRW,        skills and use the same in their daily lives.
    
The students are expected to learn and use punctuation,        write accurate simple sentences, attempt a variety of sentence        structures, recognize the need for paragraphing and use appropriate        vocabulary.

Preparation Tips

The question pattern, question type and evaluation methodology (consisting of internal assessment throughout the year and the end of the year assessment) of the 9th Jammu and Kashmir Board exam allows the students to go through the detailed syllabus thoroughly. 

Here are a few tips:

a) Go through the syllabus that you have to prepare.
b) Understand if there are mathematical calculations involved along with the theory for different topics and concepts.
c) Take help from your class teachers if you do not understand something. 
d) Prepare notes of important topics of chapters, wherever you feel necessary.
e) Mathematics needs a bit more practice than other subjects. Practice repeatedly all the difficult problems in your textbook. Attempt similar difficult problems appropriate for the 9th grade till you are sure that you can solve all the problems of that type.
f) Go through all the questions given at the end of each chapter and also at the end of the book and prepare their answers. 
g) Follow more than one book apart from the Jammu and Kashmir Board text books. Preferably follow NCERT tech books for all subjects. 
h) Take mock tests for the 9th grade provided by Embibe for more practice.

Exam Taking Strategy

Students should follow the following strategy for writing the exam:

a) Prepare all the subjects according to the exam calendar.
b) Reach the exam hall well before time and settle down.
c) As soon as the question paper is distributed, read through it and look for different options that are available for answering. 
d) Make a plan quickly and mark different questions that you want to answer and those questions that you do not want to attempt.
e) Answer the easier questions first.
f) Answer to the point. Do not write unnecessary things.
g) Answer according to the marking scheme.
h) Write in a neat and clean manner, so that the examiner gets a good impression about your answer sheet.

Detailed Study plan

1. Be systematic and planned: Go through the entire syllabus right at the beginning of the academic year and make a plan for yourself to study accordingly. 

2. Go through the entire syllabus: While getting ready for the 9th Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education, most of the students feel that a few subjects like Mathematics and Science are more important than others. This is not proper. All the subjects need to be prepared with equal importance.

3. Revise Properly: Revision is extremely important. Since the year-end board exam covers the whole of the syllabus, revision of the topics/chapters that you studied earlier is the key to success. Prepare an appropriate revision schedule similar to the main study schedule and follow it.

4. Previous Year Question Paper: The 9th Jammu and Kashmir Board exam is a school level exam. Hence, it is recommended to a student to collect previous years question papers from the school/from previous years senior’s students. 

5. Follow textbooks recommended by the 9th Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education. If you get time, follow NCERT textbooks also for additional practice.

Student Counselling

9th-grade students are at a very important stage, which is the middle of their secondary education. This is the penultimate year before they write the 10th board exam. At this age, they are very interested in knowing everything around them in the world. They need to grow both mentally and physically at this stage. As a larger part of their preparation for the 10th board exam and higher classes after that, a more focussed and dedicated approach towards studies is necessary. For this, they need to divide their time in a proper manner between their studies, sports and all other activities. A proper balance is necessary for everything they are doing. Students need to be counselled and controlled on this closely so that they remain on track.

Parent/Gaurdian counselling

Parent counselling mostly focuses on encouraging positive behaviour, managing undesired behaviour, and understanding their children’s emotional needs. Parent counselling assists parents in coping with a variety of issues that affect their children by providing appropriate guidance, resources, and expertise. Parents should be aware of the potential employment choices for their children in the near future.
