The Core Knowledge concept has influenced the definition of what it means to be culturally literate since E.D. Hirsch wrote Cultural Literacy. Now the recommendations for shorter literature works have been compiled into anthologies for grade levels in 6-8. Entries range from Ancient to Modern, world literature to American, serious to humorous. Beginning with poems, then moving to short stories, essays, speeches, and autiobiographies, each volume highlights cultural literate choices as well as pieces selected for extra reading (clearly identified in the text). Readers will find just the text"no analysis or interpretation"of important short works from such writers as Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Bullfinch, Poe, Orwell, Donne, Yeats, and Chekov and works from world influencers like Gandhi, Roosevelt, Susan B Anthony, and Einstein. The appendix in Volume 3 includes the text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A no-nonsense way to introduce your students to various types excellent writing. 5 1/4x81/4", 240-340 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
