CBSE TERMs Teaching Manuals for Teachers – CBSE releases teaching manuals for science and maths teachers of classes 6 to 10. Teachers may download Teacher Energized Manuals (TERM)/Teaching Modules of Science and Mathematics at CBSE Web Portal.
CBSE has dedicated the academic session 2020-21 for ‘Competency Based Learning’ where the focus of teaching is on the outcomes that students need to acquire. In consonance with this move towards outcome-based education, the CBSE, in collaboration with CSF, New Delhi, has developed the Teacher Energized Resource Manuals (TERM), a series of Manuals for teachers of Science and Mathematics for classes VI to X.
These Manuals will help the teachers in aligning their classroom transaction to build competencies. Each chapter of this resource manual corresponds to the respective chapters in the NCERT textbooks.

TERM aims at aiding teachers in aligning their classroom transaction to a competency framework. These can be downloaded from Diksha portal or CBSE official website.
“These are must-read manuals for teachers teaching these subjects to familiarise themselves with Learning Outcomes based teaching and learning. These can be accessed at DIKSHA and CBSE Academic Website http://cbseacademic.nic.in/term.html,” According to the education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank tweeted.
As per the manual, Each chapter of the Resource Manual corresponds to the respective chapters in the NCERT textbooks. The chapters have been chunked by concept; these concepts have been linked to the NCERT Learning Outcomes; and an attempt has been made to delineate Learning Objectives for each concept.
Every chapter has a set of assessment items, where two items have been provided as examples for each Learning Objective. Teachers can use these to assess if the learner has acquired the related concept.
Teacher Energized Resource Manuals (TERM) 2020: These Manuals are available on CBSE Website at the link http://cbseacademic.nic.in/term.html and on the DIKSHA portal at below mentioned links: It is expected that you and your teachers of Science and Mathematics shall go through these Manuals.
These Manuals will support the teachers to develop pedagogical plans for implementing Competency Based Learning to equip our students with the requisite skills and competencies pertaining to the subjects.
|Class X||Science 10||Maths 10|
|Class IX||Science 9||Maths 9|
|Class VIII||Science 8||Maths 8|
|Class VII||Science 7||Maths 7|
|Class VI||Science 6||Maths 6|
How to Use TERM Manual?
The goal of the Teacher Energized Resource Manual (TERM) is to provide teachers with competency-based education resources aligned to NCERT textbooks that would support them in the attainment of desired Learning Outcomes and development of requisite competencies of the learner.
The TERM has equal number of corresponding chapters as NCERT Textbooks with listing of concepts, Learning Outcomes developed by NCERT and Learning Objectives. Competency based test items for each corresponding Learning Objective and sample activities for enrichment have been provided.
Learning Objectives: Each chapter begins has a Learning Objectives table. The table lists the concept covered in the chapter. Learning Objectives are broken down competencies that a learner would have acquired by the end of the chapter. They are a combination of skills and what the learner would use this skill for.
For example, the first Learning Objective in the table below relates to the skill of analysis and the students will use this competency to identify ingredients in different food items. Teachers can use these specific Learning Objectives to identify if a student has acquired the associated skills and understands how that skill can be used.
Content Area/ Concepts: The important concepts and sub-concepts covered in a particular chapter are listed in the first section. Most often, they follow a logical order and present a sequence in which these are likely to be covered while teaching.
In case, your teaching strategy is different and presents them in a different order, you need not worry. Teach the way, you consider the best. You only need to ensure their understanding and the attainment of desired Learning Objectives.
Learning Outcomes (NCERT): NCERT Learning Outcomes are in each chapter along with delineated Learning Objectives. As shown below, each Learning Objective is mapped to NCERT Learning Outcomes and helps teachers to easily identify the larger outcome that a child must be able to demonstrate at the end of the class/chapter.
As the NCERT LOs are generic, they may relate to many content areas / concepts together. However in the mapped table, they have been reproduced ad verbatim for easy identification.
Test items: For each Learning Objective, at least two competency-based test items have been provided. Although, the items in this resource manual are multiple choice questions, which assess developed competencies of a child rather than only knowledge, it must be kept in mind that there can be different kinds of test items that can easily align with competency-based education.
Teachers can use these items to assess if a child has achieved a particular learning objective and can take necessary supportive actions. Teachers are also encouraged to form similar questions which assess skills of students.
Suggested Teacher Resources: At the end of each chapter, certain activities have been suggested which can be carried out by the teachers with learners to explain a concept. These are only samples and teachers can use, adapt, as well as, create activities that align to a given concept. Source: CBSE Web Portal
