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.”

Enhance your writing instruction through photography.
In Focus Lessons, Ralph Fletcher makes the link between writing and photography clear. He offers new ideas about taking pictures to spark creativity, using a camera as a writer’s notebook, learning to “read” images as mentor texts, and helping students develop writing from photos.
He also shares fifteen craft lesson ideas that bring these ideas to life in your classroom.

Second grade is a year of immense growth. Over the course of the year, second graders 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. In writing, they start the year with four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.
