What is the Core Knowledge Curriculum Series™?
When fully completed, the Core Knowledge Curriculum Series™ will be a set of comprehensive, carefully sequenced, coherent, cumulative, content-rich elementary curriculum materials, based on the Core Knowledge Sequence. While each set of materials will stand alone as subject area specific resources, all grade-level materials will be linked to one another through carefully planned pacing guides, designed to magnify the academic benefits of the Core Knowledge approach.
