ASEAN Curriculum Sourcebook Themes Adaptation Framework


The study aimed to develop an ASEAN Curriculum Sourcebook (ACS) Themes adaptation framework among ASEAN member states (AMS). Using content analysis, the Five ACS themes, Brunei, Singapore, and the Philippines' lower secondary Social Studies curriculum were comparatively analyzed. The study revealed that Brunei, Philippines, and Singapore have manifested adaptations in Valuing Identity, Connecting Local to Global, and Promoting Justice and Equity. The difference lies in the adaptation of Brunei on Knowing ASEAN while Singapore and the Philippines did not adapt it. Singapore did not adapt the theme of Working for a Sustainable Future. It was concluded that the extent of ACS Themes adaptation contributed significantly to attaining the goals of ASEAN relative to ACS themes. It was recommended that a curriculum quality audit (CQA) to examine the rest of the Social Studies curricula vis-à-vis the ACS Themes and the proposed Adaptation Framework be considered to promote intercultural learning within the region.
