WISH offers a balanced approach to literacy by combining explicit phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency development, and reading comprehension instructional strategies. Readers' and Writers' workshop occurs daily. The goal of Reader’s and Writer’s workshop is to help young people become avid and skilled readers, writers, and inquirers. This goal is accomplished through research, curriculum development, and through working shoulder-to-shoulder with students, teachers, and school leaders. Using these proven methods for teaching reading and writing, allows students to accelerate progress, experience literacy-rich content-area instruction, and to truly develop a love of language arts!
