Reading and Language Arts-2Instructor: Mangan, Jennifer
In the second grade, we use what we learned in first grade. Through instruction on specific writing strategies, we give students techniques to use in order to make their writing more complex. Second graders begin to use each other to conference, edit, and get ideas for making their stories more interesting.
We use the Units of Study by Lucy Calkins for instruction. We study Narrative, Information, and Opinion writing.
