Knowledge sequence is the result of research into the content and structure of the highest performing elementary school systems
around the world, as wall as extensive consensus-building among diverse groups and interests, including parents, teacher,
scientists, professional curriculum organizations, and experts from the Core Knowledge Foundation's advisory board on
Provisional versions of the Sequence were reviewed and revised by panels of teachers,
and in 1990 a national conference was convened at which twenty-four working groups hammered out a draft sequence. This
draft was fine-tuned during a year of implementation at Three Oaks Elementary in Fort Myers, Florida.
Sequence was revised in 1995 to reflect the experience of Core Knowledge teachers and subsequently content outlines for preschool,
kindergarten, and grades seventh and eighth were prepared in the same way.
