The New KBSM Literature Component 2010

As some of you might have noted, the literature component for KBSM has been updated with a complete new list of reading materials. There is still a lack of input on the novels though as some teachers have mentioned they might not be included. We’ll wait and see. At the mean time, TESLMALAYSIA.com will start providing valuable materials for each of the literary texts starting this month. If you would like to contribute, feel free to contact us and we’ll be more than happy to acknowledge your contribution here.

    novel : THE CURSE by Lee Sue Ann
    QUESTION:
    write about a difficult decision made by one characters.
    Can you give me sample answer of this question?

  2. what about novel The railway children??? for us as form 3 students~

  3. One Malaysia Teacher says:

    My only question is that…” Why do we have to set the novel that each state has to do? ” Can’t we just leave it for their teachers or the students themselves to choose???
    Remember Jungle of Hope and The Pearl????

  4. Jane says:

    I totally agree with One Malaysia Teacher. My Form 3 kids find it is easier to learn “The Railway Children” compare to “Journey Around the World in 80 days”. So yeah, why can’t the teachers or the students choose which novel to learn for their exam year? The most important thing is the students can understand and enjoy the text and also prepare themselves for PMR exam.
