The aims of the JCP Chumash Curriculum are:
The curriculum is built around the Chumash Curriculum Framework (CCF). The CCF identifies the broad aspects and areas of knowledge, skills and understanding that students of Chumash need to acquire and its detailed level descriptors allow teachers to chart the progress of each pupil.
The Chumash Units focus on selected topics from Chumash that offer progressive opportunities for developing the knowledge, skills and understanding outcomes. They build on the knowledge, skills and understanding gained in previous units and includes detailed lesson plans as well as range of differentiated resources that can be adapted to suit the needs of each school. The units combine a careful examination of the key words, phrases and verses intrinsic to the study of the text together with an in-depth analysis of their meaning.
