Focusing on whole language as a dynamic philosophy of education.
< Back to WLU
WLU is an organization made up of local whole language groups and individual members who come together under the umbrella to network and discuss issues related to whole language theory, research, and pedagogy.
The Whole Language Umbrella accepts certain beliefs as being common to whole language practitioners.
The Whole Language Umbrella provides support for individual members and member groups to improve the quality of learning and teaching at all levels of education.
These groups provide individual members, usually from the same geographical area, a local network for their interest in whole language.
The Whole Language Umbrella Executive Board is responsible for making all on-going operational decisions. The WLU elections are held each year with two members being elected.
Three awards are presented each year to honor members who view whole language as a dynamic philosophy of education.
