The site functions primarily to provide GUHSD teachers and staff critical information about GUHSD's common-core aligned, district-wide ELA summative writing assessments. Additionally, this site contains documentation designed to assist teachers and schools in their efforts to more closely align teaching practices, expectations, and objectives with the common core state standards. Achieving these purposes will ideally further promote confidence, conversation, collaboration, and equity between and within GUHSD schools.
There are many types of literacy - Math, Science, English, Social Sciences… which our students will need for success in career and college. GUHSD is emphasizing training for teachers to learn strategies and techniques specific for their content areas to enhance the teaching of overall literacy to our students and increase overall student achievement.
