The essential document for any Core Knowledge teacher or school, the Core Knowledge Sequence provides a detailed outline of specific knowledge to be taught in grades K–8 in Language Arts, American and World History, Geography, Visual Arts, Music, Math, and Science. The content specified in the Sequence complements the general skills and objectives typically found in state and local curriculum guides. An introductory essay discusses the research and consensus-building efforts behind the Sequence and describes the basic steps of implementing a Core Knowledge school program.

Furthermore, The Core Knowledge Sequence wields the power of an overlooked fact—that knowledge is based on prior knowledge. For students to learn content, they must access, reframe, and altogether arrange what they knew before that time. Prior knowledge is too often assumed, in speaking and listening, as well as reading and writing. As a response, the Sequence provides a coherent, cumulative, and content-specific curriculum that opens the doors of excellent background knowledge to all children of all backgrounds. From this solid base, students are able to access more, read more, and understand more about the world around them.

The Sequence is not a curriculum-in-a-box. Instead, through professional development, the Core Knowledge Foundation trains teachers to create coherent Curriculum Plans and Domain Maps guiding teacher creation of rich lesson plans and units that promote domain immersion and align with the content of the Sequence and the Common Core State Standards.

Please note: This 2010 revised Sequence includes Preschool Content Guidelines, as well as Kindergarten through Grade 8. The book is tumbled. Grades K-8 are available on one side; just flip the book over for Preschool Content Guidelines.
