Critical Literacy: Unlocking Contemporary Fiction
Critical Literacy: Unlocking Contemporary Fiction

This unit is not like what most of us experienced in our English classes as teens. It’s not an all-class novel unit, nor a canonical text unit, nor a classic interpretation unit. Like the novel at the heart of this unit—Ibi Zoboi’s Pride: A Pride and Prejudice Remix—this unit offers a new take on an old classic.

“Writing allows each of us to live with that special wide-awakeness that comes from knowing that our lives and our ideas are worth writing about.”

—Lucy Calkins

In Teaching Writing, Lucy Calkins shares the depth and breadth of her knowledge, from the initial research that launched some of the biggest ideas still foundational to the teaching of writing today, to her newest insights gleaned from decades of work and study in thousands of classrooms across the globe.

How do you support upper-grade and middle school readers if they are new to the norms and culture of reading workshop, particularly if they may also have missed some foundational instruction? How do you do this in a way that builds a strong reading community and strong habits and routines? How do you approach all this if you are new to the teaching of reading workshop? The Up the Ladder Reading units offer a very good place to start.

The transformation that happens during kindergarten is astonishing. At the start of your year, many of your children will be holding their books upside down and backwards and making letters look like squiggles, but by the end the year, they will be reading and writing for their own important purposes. Phonics instruction is at the center of this transformation.

The growth that second graders experience over the course of a year is incredible. Students start the year writing four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. In reading, they go from reading early chapter books like Fly Guy to longer, more complicated books like Magic Treehouse. It’s the year that most kids get hooked on a series, fall in love with characters, and follow them on all sorts of adventures. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.

For first graders, phonics is all-important. In this one year, students are expected to go from reading little books comprised of just a few pages to reading early chapter books. In writing, too, there are ambitious expectations—children begin writing a few lines on a couple of pages and end the year writing books with chapters—filling up multiple lines on a page and organizing their writing into sections.
