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.

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.

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.
