What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know

NEW: This is the revised paperback edition of What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know.

This revised edition has the following desirable features.
  1. It is perfectly aligned with the current Sequence, whereas the old edition was very imperfectly aligned after the addition of grades 7 and 8 in the late 1990s led to changes in the grade 6 curriculum.
  2. It is printed on nicer paper and has a more attractive look than the first edition.
  3. It has a full-color art section showing all the artworks in the Sequence (compare to black and white art in first edition)

Since E. D. Hirsch’s Core Knowledge Series was launched in 1991, hundreds of thousands of students have benefited from the books’ effective and delightful treatments of essential knowledge for each grade. With sixteen pages of full-color illustrations, a bolder, easier-to-follow format, and a thoroughly updated curriculum, What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know, Revised Edition, reflects the Core Knowledge Foundation’s ongoing commitment to providing a solid educational foundation for today’s elementary and middle school students.

What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know, Revised Edition, includes poems by Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, and Maya Angelou. It introduces children to the Iliad and the Odyssey and to sayings such as “once bitten, twice shy.” History and geography topics include deserts, ancient Greece and Rome, Judaism and Christianity, the Enlightenment, and the Industrial Revolution. The Visual Arts chapter sketches the history of art, with more than twenty full-color illustrations, while the music section profiles notable composers like Bach, Handel, Mozart, and Beethoven. A clear overview of sixth-grade math concepts is followed by accessible, easy-to-follow science topics, including plate tectonics and astronomy.

What Your Sixth Grader Needs to Know is for all parents concerned about their children’s education. The perfect supplement to classroom education, it gives parents specific and effective guidance in helping their children gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed at school and in society.

Sixth Grader is the last book in the contract. There are currently no plans to do a SEVENTH GRADER book.
