Newly-adopted ELA standards focus on improving reading for all learners

MADISON — State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor today announced the adoption of newly revised Wisconsin Standards for English Language Arts, which help the state’s youngest students build reading foundational skills with an emphasis placed on developing an understanding of phonics through explicit, systematic instruction.
 
Earlier this year, Stanford Taylor stressed the importance of altering practices to include differing methods of ELA instruction so Wisconsin students learn to comprehend text.
