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.
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.
