World Languages Curriculum

 

WORLD LANGUAGES MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to provide the opportunity for all students to engage in a comprehensive and rigorous World Language curriculum which prepares students linguistically and culturally to communicate in a global society. 

PHILOSOPHY

In North Smithfield and Burrillville, we believe the World Language Program will:

  • Facilitate the learning cycle of World Languages through the five Cs (communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities), the Common Core of English Language Arts Standards, and the Applied Learning Standards.

  • Provide high quality standards-based instruction for students, using best practices, analysis of available data, and a variety of assessment strategies.

  • Encourage students to become confident and effective communicators, proficient readers, critical thinkers, and life-long learners.

  • Uniquely provide opportunities for interaction in our global world which are available through the study of World Languages.
