In this ever-changing world, the concept of livelihood is altering every moment. The advancement of
technology, in accordance with knowledge and skill, has accelerated the pace of change. There is no
alternative to adapting to this fast changing world. The reason is, the development of technology is at its
zenith compared to any time in the human history. In the fourth industrial revolution era, the advancement
of artificial intelligence has brought a drastic change in our employment and lifestyles and this will make
the relationship among people more and more intimate. Varied employment opportunities will be created
in near future which we cannot even predict at this moment. We need to take preparation right now so that
we can adapt ourselves to that upcoming future.
Although a huge economic development has taken place throughout the world, the problems of climate
change, air pollution, migrations and ethnic violence have become much more intense than before. The
epidemic like COVID-19 has appeared and obstructed the normal lifestyle and economic growth of the
world. Different challenges and opportunities have been added to our daily life.
Standing on the verge of these challenges and possibilities, implementation of sustainable and effective
solutions is required for the transformation of our large population into a resource. It entails global citizens
with knowledge, skill, values, vision, positive attitude, sensitivity, capability to adapt, humanity and
patriotism. Amidst all these, Bangladesh has graduated into a developing nation from the underdeveloped
periphery and is continuously trying to achieve the desired goals in order to become a developed country
by 2041. Education is one of the pivotal instruments to attain the goals and there is no alternative to
the modernization of our education system. Developing an effective and updated curriculum has become
crucial for this modernization.
Developing and revising the curriculum is a regular and vital activity of National Curriculum and Textbook
Board. The last revision of the curriculum was done in 2012. Since then, a lot of time has passed. The
necessity of curriculum revision and development has emerged. For this purpose, various research and
technical exercises were conducted under the supervision of NCTB during the year 2017 to 2019 to analyze
the prevalent situation of education and assess the learning needs. Based on the researches and technical
exercises, a competency-based incessant curriculum from K-12 has been developed to create a competent
generation to survive in the new world situation.
In the light of the competency based curriculum, the textbooks have been prepared for all streams
(General, Madrasah and Vocational) of learners for class nine. The authentic experience driven contents
of this textbook were developed in such a way that teaching learning becomes comprehensible and full of
merriment. This will connect textbooks with various life related phenomenon and events that are constantly
taking place around us. We hope that learning will be profound and life-long now.
Issues like gender, ethnicity, religion, caste, the disadvantaged and students with special needs have been
taken into special consideration while developing the textbook. I would like to thank all who have put their
best efforts in writing, editing, illustrating and publishing the textbook.
If any one finds any errors or inconsistencies in this experimental version and has any suggestions
for improving its quality, we kindly ask them to let us know.
