World Book and common core

It has come to the attention of NHN that World Book has changed their recommended course of study to be aligned with Common Core standards. It is the opinion of the NHN board that common core is an inferior standard to the classic course of study. Thus, we have decided to archive the classic World Book course of study here for your reference.
