Read Wisconsin: A Resource for Literacy Leaders
Wisconsin’s portrait of a literate student highlights the literacy skills that are critical to achieving Wisconsin’s vision of every child graduating ready for college and career. There are multiple initiatives to support this vision that may seem separate but that actually work together to support student success. The vision of every child a graduate forms the foundation for building a supportive process for teaching and learning rigorous and relevant content based on academic standards. Wisconsin’s Guiding Principles for Teaching and Learning reflect research-based attitudes and beliefs that inform instruction. At the center of these initiatives are the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (click here to order a printed copy), which reflect Wisconsin’s foundational beliefs about English Language Arts.
