That looks right, except I would recommend not to use load. Put the 
other stuff into a module as well, and require it in you module (or put 
it into the module if it belongs there).

Here's a list of things you might want to check:

  Have you...

... used a filename like "wrap-standard-code.scm" for your module 
declaration of wrap-standard-code?

...used all lowercase filenames (or consistent case everywhere)?

...required everything you need inside your module declaration, such as 
(require (lib "class.ss")) or (require (lib "mred.ss" "mred")?

...checked that your module files such as "wrap-standard-code.scm" is 
in a path the module resolver can find, e.g. in the same directory as 
the file that requires the module?
