The curricular components of Portuguese Language and Literature, and Brazilian History and Geography make up PASB’s Brazilian program.
PASB’s Brazilian program includes the curricular components Portuguese Language and Literature, and Brazilian History and Geography, which are structured in accordance with the National Common Curricular Base (BNCC) for Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Schools. These official documents are useful instruments to support pedagogical discussions, elaborate educational projects, plan classes, reflect on educational practices, and analyze teaching materials.
The goal of PASB’s Brazilian Program is to ensure that all students, including those from foreign countries receive a curricular education that meets the legal requirements of the Law of Directives and Bases of National Education and the BNCC, in accordance with our School Policy. Furthermore, they learn to appreciate aspects of Brazilian culture, strengthen their national identity and develop meaningful contacts with local culture.
The structure of PASB’s Brazilian Program Curriculum considers the vertical and horizontal chains of skill and competence development, in a way that allows our students to acquire skills which develop from the simplest to the more complex, in accordance with their cognitive evolution.
PASB’S Brazilian Curriculum is in line with the American and the IB (International Baccalaureate) curricula, which allow our students to receive a full education in all areas of knowledge by the end of Basic Education, and enables them to obtain three diplomas, which broadens their options of joining either Brazilian or international universities.
