What is Core Knowledge?
Caddie

An Idea...
that academic excellence can only be built on a solid, coherent curriculum.
A Guide...
that outlines specific content, taking children grade by grade through the accumulated knowledge that has formed our culture.
A School Reform Movement...
that is inspiring educators to teach important content and critical skills coordinated within grade levels, across districts, and with hundreds of other Core Knowledge schools across the country.

About the Core Knowledge Foundation
Dedicated to excellence and fairness in early education, the Core Knowledge Foundation is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan organization founded in 1986 by E. D. Hirsch, Jr., professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and author of many acclaimed books including Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know and The Schools We Need and Why We Don't Have Them. The Foundation conducts research on curricula, develops books and other materials for parents and teachers, offers workshops for teachers, hosts an annual national conference, and serves as the hub of a growing network of Core Knowledge schools.

Core Knowledge Sequence
Caddie
THE CORE KNOWLEDGE FOUNDATION, established in 1986, is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to excellence and fairness in early education. The Foundation conducts research on educational issues and ideas; develops books and other materials for teachers, parents, and children; provides training and support for educators implementing the Core Knowledge Sequence; and serves as the hub of a growing national network of Core Knowledge schools.
Knowledge Builds on Knowledge
“Core Knowledge at a Glance” provides an overview of major topic headings in the Core Knowledge Sequence, allowing you to see how topics in the Sequence build from one grade to another.
For example, in fifth grade World History, study of the Renaissance builds on earlier studies of ancient Greece (sec¬ond grade), ancient Rome (third grade), and the Middle Ages (fourth grade). Or, in Science, the basic concept of the atom, introduced in first grade, leads by fifth grade to an understanding of how atomic properties are organized in the Periodic Table.
Grade-by-grade sequencing of topics is important because it gives teachers some assurance that children will come prepared with a shared core of knowledge and skills, and because children learn more effectively when instruction follows the basic psychological principle that we learn new knowledge by building on what we already know.

Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence
Caddie

THE CORE KNOWLEDGE PRESCHOOL SEQUENCE provides a detailed outline of knowledge and competencies young children need in order to build a solid, coherent foundation for later learning. The Preschool Sequence guidelines specifically address five dimensions of readiness:
Motor Skills
• Movement and Coordination
Social Skills
• Autonomy and Social Skills
Approaches to Learning
• Work Habits
Language Skills
• Oral Language
• Nursery Rhymes, Poems, Fingerplays and Songs
• Storybook Reading and Storytelling
• Emerging Literacy Skills in Reading and Writing
Cognitive Development
• Mathematical Reasoning and Number Sense
• Orientation in Time and Space
• Scientific Reasoning and the Physical World
• Music
• Visual Arts

WHY PRESCHOOL?
« We used to think that people were bom with a fixed amount of brain power. Now we know that the right kind of stimulation in the early years dramatically affects a child's intellectual capacity... If we are convinced that preschools are important for the development of young children - and I think they are - we need to begin rethinking our ideas about preschool education. »
- Albert Shanker, Past President, American Federation of Teachers, New York Times (11/3/96)
« A good, academically focused preschool can overcome the egregious academic differences that currently develop between social classes in American schools. »
- E. D. Hirsch, Jr., The Schools We Need (1996)

THE CORE KNOWLEDGE FOUNDATION, established in 1986, is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to excellence and fairness in early education.
