Wisconsin's Vision for Student Success in English Language Arts

Wisconsin's Vision for English Language Arts

Wisconsin's Guiding Principles for Teaching and Learning provide important guidance for approaching the discipline of English language arts.  

Certain foundations of the discipline connect all standards across the four areas of: reading, writing, speaking/listening, and language at a more conceptual level.  

To further connect the standards, and to make explicit the underpinnings of the discipline of ELA, Wisconsin has developed several broad emphases to consider listed as the Wisconsin Foundations for English Language Arts.
