Core Knowledge Language Arts Curriculum

Albuquerque School of Excellence uses Core Knowledge Language Art Curriculum in grades 1-5. Core Knowledge’s instructional materials are designed to ensure that all students acquire the broad knowledge and skills needed to become responsible, productive citizens. While much of the education arena focuses on all students becoming college and career ready, Core Knowledge focuses on college, career, and citizenship. In the 21st century, being college and career ready means being ready to compete with people from around the world. It requires expertise in one’s chosen field—and the strong, broad foundation Core Knowledge provides in the early grades enables students to figure out which subjects they want to delve into in high school and beyond. Being citizenship ready means being able to communicate with people around the world. Citizenship requires the ability to speak with and listen to people all across the United States, to understand the perspectives of people around the world, to read the local paper or the New York Times, to write out one’s platform and run for office. By basing its materials on core content and core values, Core Knowledge puts students on the path to effectively competing and communicating.
