GWLUFSD follows the Reading and Writing Workshop model for instruction in ELA. The goal of this teaching method is to explicitly teach students strategies to become more skillful at comprehending text and communicating in written form. It involves students in authentic experiences of reading and writing that focus on the strengths and needs of each individual student through differentiated instruction. 

Our District robust literacy instruction includes the Science of Reading instructional model of incorporating the five key elements of reading instruction: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension.
