Providence District and Curriculum
The Providence Public School District developed and is implementing its own, district-wide core curricula in the areas of Math, Science, English Language Arts, Social Studies, Arts, Technology, Physical Education and Health, and Business. They provide research-based, student-centered programs that are aligned with state and national assessments. The district has grade level and subject area curriculum guides that are focused on content and performance, ensuring that every student is prepared to graduate and continue his or her education at the post-secondary level.
We currently cover the following Providence-area school district: Providence Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Providence District Curriculum
Providence uses an Aligned Instruction System that was created by teachers and administrators in the district in order to focus on the specific student needs. For example, the curriculum documents for English Language Arts outline each unit for the year with the required content and processes the students must learn. Each unit also has specific Essential Questions. In 9th grade, students focus on different genres such as non-fiction, memoir, and short stories. In 10th grade, the focus shifts to units about social and historical periods such as Puritan literature and Revolutionary War text.
The Science curricula are divided into Biology, Chemistry, and Physics at the high school level, emphasizing key concepts in each. In Biology, students focus on ecosystems and genetics. In Chemistry, they are expected to study atomic properties, The Periodic Table, and the laws of energy. In Physics, students cover everything from the basic laws of motion toelectromagnetism to topics in astronomy.

Chalk Talk: Graduation Is the Goal
TStarting in 2014, Rhode Island is instituting new performance-based graduation requirements (PGRBs). These requirements are more rigorous and demanding, but they are a step toward making sure students not only graduate, but are also equipped with the necessary skills to pursue post-secondary training. This is vital in helping reduce the nation’s dropout rate, which, according to AdCouncil.org, is 7,000 a day. This number remains too high and the plans that will be put in place will ensure that students have the programs which engage their curiosity and provide a relevant and rigorous education.
