Creation of Lessons and the Syllabus

All the lessons for grades 10 and 11 produced by the National Institute of Education and the Dharmavahini Foundation have been scrutinized by the in-service advisors (ISAs) who are the experts in respective subjects. After that the lessons were lined up according to the competency levels based on the syllabuses and the textbooks and then the present timetable has been set for each subject accordingly.

The Timetable

Interval between 10.30 a.m. and 10.50 a.m. in the timetable has been allocated for the programs such as documentaries, variety entertainments and quiz programs. In addition to that, on public holidays the programs under the subjects of Science, Mathematics, English and Sinhala will be re-telecast depending on the requests made by the viewers about the difficult programs telecast before the respective public holidays.

New timetable prepared for Grade 10 new syllabus and grade 11 old syllabus, has been implemented from 25.04.2016 and then the arrangements have been made to prepare the timetable for third term. During the last two weeks of each term, as there are term tests, without telecasting normal programs, only difficult lessons, revision lessons, variety entertainment and quiz programs will be telecast. In this instance, the arrangements have been made to telecast also the aesthetic programs, variety entertainment and documentary programs produced by the National Institute of Education.

Design and Production of the Lessons

Design and production of these lessons are done by the National Institute of Education and the Dharmavahini Foundation and the services of the expert teachers serving in the government schools, in-service advisors with subject expertise and the lecturers of the National Institute of Education are obtained for this purpose.
