HOWLs guide and reinforce productive academic behavior that helps students become independent learners and successful community members. They help create a supportive learning environment.
Teachers identify and incorporate the HOWLs target into lessons and positively call out when students are applying HOWLs. Depending on the grade level, HOWLs count as 15-25% of a course grade for students in grades 6-12.
The REACH Learner Profile describes the most important attributes and skills a student develops throughout their educational journey. HOWLs are classroom behaviors that help students develop those attributes and skills.
