​ICSE students to get Harry Potter, Tintin, Asterix as English syllabus

ICSE has decided to include Harry Potter, Asterix, Tintin and even Amar Chitra Katha in the English syllabus.

Student phase of everyone is common with the stories about hiding comics and story books beneath the course books.

ICSE has decided to include Harry Potter, Asterix, Tintin and even Amar Chitra Katha in the English syllabus.

So no more hiding and lying from teachers and parents, students can enjoy the books as their lessons.

According to a report in TOI, The Council of School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has prescribed some of the most popular books of our times--Harry Potter included--for junior and middle-school students while laying down a uniform syllabus for all schools to follow from the 2017-18 session.

If some schools fail to introduce the recommended texts in the coming academic session, they would be granted a year's extension.

Not just Tintin, even popular graphic novels such as Amar Chitra Katha and Asterix and the American cartoonist Art Spiegelman's Holocaust saga 'Maus' will be introduced for all Classes from III to VIII. Considering the earlier syllabus relied heavily on Shakespeare and Victorian novels, this is no doubt a massive leap.

The syllabus change though, doesn't stop here. Kids will also read about Feluda, Poirot and Holmes and read about Bilbo Baggins in JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit. While many children today are not familiar with PG Wodehouse they can now gain an insight into the iconic books.

Autobiographies, one of the most interesting ways to gain perspective into someone's inspirational life, will also be included. Think The Diary of Anne Frank and I Am Malala.

Younger children won't feel left out. The report states that Classes I and II will now have Noddy books as part of the syllabus--imagine that. With many illustrations, they can now enjoy their classes as they learn about Toyland and Big Ears and Tessy Bear and of course the goblins.
