NORTH SMITHFIELD 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, 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.
