Guide to Instruction
The primary goal of the Westborough Public Schools' Literacy program is to foster our students' literacy development, so they become independent readers, writers, and communicators. Instructional practices are deep rooted in best practice research with an emphasis on balanced literacy, active student engagement, differentiated instruction, and data driven instructional decision making.
A balanced literacy framework involves students in a range of reading, writing, listening, and speaking experiences that can be differentiated to meet individual needs and interests. The list of instructional essentials for ELA and literacy learning is based upon a close study of the Massachusetts Frameworks for ELA & Literacy (2011)
