The Core Knowledge Foundation Since 1986, Core Knowledge has been the leading national voice for content-rich literacy. Core Knowledge Founder E.D.

Two Essential Keys to Literacy Students must be able to read or decode the written symbols (letters) and they must understand and make sense of what they decode. One without the other is ineffective. The Core Knowledge Language Arts program addresses both keys in two separate instructional strands, each of which represent 1 ‐ hour of instruction daily. 3

Skills Strand Teaches the mechanics of reading – students are taught systematic and explicit phonics instruction as their primary tool for decoding written English. By the end of grade 2, students have learned all of the sound ‐ spelling correspondences in the English language and are able to decode just about any written material they encounter. In addition to phonics, students also are taught spelling, grammar, and writing during the Skills Strand. 4

Listening and Learning Strand Consists of a series of read ‐ alouds organized by topics (called domains), many of which are informational in nature. The goal in the Listening and Learning strand is for students to acquire language competence through listening, specifically building a rich vocabulary, and broad knowledge in history and science by being exposed to carefully selected, sequenced and coherent read ‐ alouds. 5

Key Aspects of the Skills Strand Reading and writing are taught in tandem. Focuses on sounds, or phonemes. Teaches the most common, or least ambiguous spellings first. Students read and write only what they have been taught. Lowercase letters are taught first. 7

Overview of Assessments Individual student performance can be assessed by observation of student responses during classroom activities and/ or completion of workbook pages. Opportunities for such assessment are noted in both the Skills and Listening and Learning Teacher Guides with a. A score of 10 indicates excellent performance and a 0 indicates very poor performance. Tens Scores can be recorded on a chart like the one below. It’s easy to see which students need extra help. 11

How do we know this works? 17 K – 2 Pilot with New York City Teachers and Students Compared to peers, Kindergarteners taught with the CKLA program made more statistically significant progress in all areas of reading tested: spelling, phonemic awareness, decoding, and comprehension Compared to peers, 1 st graders taught with the CKLA program made more statistically significant progress in reading, science and social studies. Both students with only one year of CKLA instruction and those with two years of CKLA instruction made greater gains than their peers at comparison schools – Compared to peers, 2 nd graders taught with CKLA made more progress in all areas of reading and social studies.
