Teaching for Equity with Wisconsin’s Revised Standards for English Language Arts

Participants in this interactive session will engage in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use in order to better understand how Wisconsin’s Standards for English Language Arts (2020) support us in teaching for equity. Our work will focus on two aspects of the revised standards: Wisconsin’s Key Shifts in ELA (appendix 1) and overarching statements, which support educators in teaching learners to engage with and create a variety of texts. Participants will also learn about ready-to-use online professional learning materials about the standards.

GBLC service project

GBLC is pleased to be partnering with Eye Heart World and the Rose Home for our community service project this year. Eye Heart World and The Rose Home work to support and stop human trafficking. Survivors of sex trafficking experience unspeakable trauma. As a result, they require a highly specialized level of care that's rooted in best and promising practices. The Rose home, based in Green Bay, is a residential aftercare program that serves survivors ages 18-25 through a holistic, strength-based approach. Rose Home is in need of journals, pencils, pens, colored pencils and highlighters. These will be used as part of the therapy those who live at Rose Home receive. Please bring donations to our meetings.
