Wit & Wisdom

Wit & Wisdom

Oak Harbor Intermediate School (OHI) participates in the Wit & Wisdom curriculum created by Great Minds. Wit & Wisdom is a robust, rigorous, and engaging resource built on the conviction that every child is capable of greatness! 

What is Wit & Wisdom?

Wit & Wisdom is designed to challenge students positively, build their knowledge of the world around them, and hone the skills they need to be strong readers, critical thinkers, skilled writers, and excellent communicators.  Wit & Wisdom is different from other English language arts curricula because it features rich, award-winning books that will awaken and expand your student’s natural curiosity. By studying fiction and nonfiction texts, famous works of art, videos, photographs, and more, students engage deeply with rich, meaningful content, which provides a much stronger intellectual and cultural foundation than brief interaction with the short excerpts that textbooks usually include
