The Wisconsin Readiness Equity Network (WREN)

The Wisconsin Readiness Equity Network (WREN) is a partnership of 4K leaders from Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, Racine, DPI, and UW researchers focused on improving child opportunities and outcomes through collaborative research projects.

We have identified Play-based teaching and learning as our first focus area. Our team has created a Play Video Library that features district 4K and 5K teachers’ play-based teaching, illustrating the many ways that play can be used in instruction. This searchable library shows playful teaching  of content like math and science as well as social emotional learning.
