For A Better World
Eclipse Publishing came to exist in 2003 to provide a social studies curriculum that caters for the Arab World. The idea behind the series “For a Better World” is based on the Arab culture, heritage and traditions. Nevertheless, the series is also suitable for learners from different nationalities and backgrounds since it does not focus only on the Arab lifestyle, but also introduces a range of other cultures and civilizations from around the world.
As the company seeks to develop educational programs, several publications were introduced since its establishment. In 2007 the company introduced the “Living Together” courses 1-3 to fulfill its plan to cover grades 1-9. The “Living Together” is a social studies series suitable for upper grades consist of history, geography, and global issues around the world.
By the year 2009, a new series called “Global Citizen” levels 1-3 came out. A social studies series that emphasis on health education and citizenships. This series is for grades 1, 2, & 3 and can be an alternative for the same grades from the “For a Better World” series. Therefore, creating multiple social studies series will help schools choosing the curriculum that best fit its educational requirements.
Islam Is My Deen
The year 2009 has also witnessed the launching of “Islam Is My Deen”. The six-level school textbooks are based on comprehensive 6-year curriculum of Islamic Education. The curriculum covers the main aspects of Islamic Education that each Muslim should know. Upper level textbooks are in developing and should be ready in the very near time. Recently, the company introduced the series “My First Block” which is a two levels program for Kindergarten 1 & 2.
The program consists of thirteen student books with one theme for all the topics in each program. Each series is supported with student’s workbook, teacher’s manual CD, and extra resources CD.
