These objectives build over the years, and are learned by calling upon students prior knowledge from earlier years.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Smithfield District Curriculum
The English Language Arts framework is based on student learning in reading, writing, speaking, listening, media studies, and research. Many of the skills within these areas interconnect so they are generally taught in conjunction with each other. Writing is taught with a process-oriented approach where students begin by outlining and brainstorming, then write, revise and edit before providing a final presentation of their work. Also, the use of technology to enhance written work and presentations is taught.
The Math curriculum begins with numeracy and develops skills in algebra, geometry, statistics and helps prepare students for the more advanced topics of trigonometry and calculus. The early learning in pattern recognition or the ability to manipulate shapes and spatial concepts prepares students to work with advanced concepts in algebra and geometry in high school. The math curriculum also requires that students are able to use reasoning, communicate their math thinking and can problem-solve with precision.

Chalk Talk: What Is Differentiated Instruction?
Differentiated instruction is used by teachers to make sure that each student in their class is given challenging assignments that meet their educational needs. When students have different abilities and work at different paces, teachers can group students according to ability or in ways that help students learn from each other. Another facet of differentiated instruction is to give some students a heavier workload to push their abilities if a challenge is what the student requires. Another aim with differentiated instruction is to maximize the different learning styles that students have so that all students develop different modes in which they learn effectively.
