People and Places in Our Community

Theme-Based Writing for Grade 2 Students

As they write fiction and nonfiction compositions, students will learn about the many workers who keep a community running smoothly—from firefighters and police officers to road crews and rescue workers.

The 2021-22 academic year course is already in session and new students can no longer be added. This course will be offered again for the 2022-23 academic year. However, new sessions may be opened sooner in response to adequate demand. To be notified when 2022-23 registration opens OR to express interest in a new session that begins sooner, please complete the form below.

Overview

This is a small writing class for second grade students to learn to write according to the Institute for Excellence in Writing’s Structure and Style methodology.

In this class, students will learn to deliver oral reports, take notes, retell narrative stories, and write summaries. Students will also practice dress-ups and study vocabulary words.

This class’s theme is: People and Places in Our Community. Students will get to know the workers who keep a community running smoothly—from firefighters and police officers to road crews and rescue workers—while they practice and master fundamental writing skills. While the primary purpose of these lessons is to learn to write, the themed lessons serve to broaden students’ subject knowledge and capture their interest.
