W.I.N. Classes

All GISD middle school students will be enrolled in an advisory class called W.I.N. (What I Need).

Lyles students will use this time for:

  • GISD Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum

  • Math practice activities

  • Reading practice activities

  • Drop Everything And Read (DEAR)

  • College and Career Readiness

  • Academic interventions and tutorials

  • MAP testing


Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is an important part of well-rounded student instruction. These skills help students academically, emotionally and socially.

Our mission is to help create an environment of equity and excellence in our schools. We do this using SEL by:

  • empowering learners by developing SEL skills

  • fostering open and equal environments

  • cultivating partnerships that help our community develop and thrive

Math and Reading Practice Activities

Math and ELAR teachers will create weekly practice materials for each of their classes. Students will have the opportunity to practice skills they are currently studying in math/ELAR during their WIN period.

Drop Everything And Read (DEAR)

Students and teachers and teachers will have designated days to "drop everything and read" during WIN. DEAR makes reading a priority and allows students to select their own reading material.

College and Career Readiness

Students will have the opportunity to explore high school magnet programs, career options, and what it means to be college ready. Students will also set academic goals, track their personal progress, and learn positive study habits.

MAP Testing

All K-8 students in GISD take the MAP Assessment for reading, math, and science three times each year. Students will MAP test during WIN time so they do not miss academic instruction during core classes.
