• Core Knowledge
    This year at Humphrey, in addition to using the district curriculum, we are implementing the Core Knowledge Sequence at our school. 
     
    What is Core Knowledge?
     
    Core Knowledge is based on the idea that to achieve academic excellence, greater fairness, and higher literacy, schools need a …SOLID, SEQUENCED, SPECIFIC, and SHARED core curriculum in order to help children establish strong foundations of knowledge, grade by grade.  
    • Solid - lasting, unchanging knowledge such as important events of world history;
    • Sequenced - a planned progression building on students' previous knowledge and eliminating excessive repetition and gaps;
    • Specific - clearly defined knowledge at each grade level ensuring fairness for all students;
    • Shared - providing all students, regardless of background, with the shared knowledge they need to be included in our national literate culture.
