The exploration of school-based curriculum with the core literacy concept is a new trend in the world’s education reform and development. Starting from the background of core literacy school-based curriculum construction, combined with the school-running characteristics and concepts of Chengdu Qizhong Experimental School, we carried out the practical exploration of school-based curriculum, determined the curriculum objectives, and constructed a school-based curriculum system generated by core literacy. Through the reform of classroom teaching mode, the construction of learning groups, and the transformation of student learning methods, the core literacy of students has been cultivated.
