Four modules, with 3 units in each, comprise a full year’s curriculum. Each module progresses in a standard sequence: Building Background Knowledge (Unit 1), Extended Reading and Research (Unit 2), and Extended Writing (Unit 3).
Each module comes with books – not textbooks or anthologies – which have been carefully selected and vetted by the authors of the Common Core as the best books for teaching grade level content. These central texts are supported by a list of recommended texts—books, articles, and primary source documents—that balance literary and informational texts at appropriate levels of complexity.
