Basically, core subjects differ in every country or jurisdiction, for instance in Ghana are four (4) main core subjects. List of core subjects: Mathematics English Science and Social Studies Also, some countries have more than four hence here are the possible five (5) core subjects: The 5 core subjects are: Mathematics English Science Social Studies and History Core Subjects: What Are They? by Susan Wise Bauer Last updated July 12, 2016 Some subjects really form the core of your curriculum. If you’re just starting to plan your home school journey, your first step should be to plan out your core subjects. A core subject is a necessity: something your child has to learn in order to be educated. The good news is that the core subjects are relatively straightforward. There are really only four: Mathematics Language Arts History Science Of course, it’s not quite that simple, since Language Arts has four different components: Reading (phonics for younger children, literature for those already reading well) Writing (composition) Spelling Grammar We strongly suggest that you think of “language arts” as four different subjects, rather than investing in a complete “language arts” curriculum. Grammar and spelling are skill-based subjects, meaning that your student should master them in a planned, sequential manner, using workbooks and exercises; literature is an exploration-based subject, meaning that you can pick and choose what you want the student to read (but she’ll never read all of it!); writing combines aspects of both skill and exploration. Most combined language arts curricula either do skill or exploration well—but not both. (Also, complete language arts programs for young students who are still studying phonics almost always require far too much handwriting and fine motor work by linking reading skills to writing skills.) So as you construct your first year of home education, begin by settling on texts for each of the following: For all students: Math Spelling Grammar History Science For students in grades K-2 only, add in: Phonics Penmanship (handwriting) For students in grades 3 and up only: Writing (composition) Literature (rather than selecting a “text” for this, we strongly suggest that you simply use a reading list and have the student read through a selected number of wonderful books) For guidance in recording these subjects on a transcript for students in grades 9-12, see “How to Assign High School Credits.” 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to can add an answer.
