Cranston District and Curriculum
The Cranston Public School District is in the fourth year of a six-year transition that aligns all curricula and assessment with The Common Core. This shift is consistent with the district’s goal of developing critical and resourceful thinkers by providing meaningful learning experiences. To ensure that students will be equipped with 21st century skills, the Superintendent is supportive of Rhode Island’s commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The district is also actively developing a strategic plan focusing on Math, Science, Language Arts, and Communication.
We currently cover the following Cranston-area school district: Cranston Public School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cranston District Curriculum
As early as Kindergarten, Cranston students are learning mathematical concepts such as counting and cardinality. Moving through the elementary and middle years, students are introduced to foundational topics in algebra, geometry and data analysis. In high school, students are expected to not only learn mathematical concepts, but they are also required to be proficient in using critical reasoning in order to construct arguments that prove their knowledge of the subject.
In Language Arts, students learn a host of reading, writing and communication skills. Reading comprehension with a particular focus on word study and understanding of text features is central throughout the curriculum. Students read across the curriculum, meaning that they are introduced to non-fiction, scientific writing, and other styles of text. Writing is taught as a process, focusing on key steps so that students are able to fully develop their ideas. Listening, speaking and discussion techniques are also a part of the Language Arts curriculum.
