This is a one day lesson to be used prior to introducing the novel, Bud, Not Buddy.
Use this questionnaire the first day before you give the novel to the group or class. Ask students to answer the questions independently and honestly. For each question, they will explain their answers. Students will discuss in small groups, and then the teacher will lead a discussion of student answers and thoughts. Finally, the teacher will introduce the book and the main character, Bud.
This is an activity to help your students anticipate what they will read. It would be interesting to come back to these questions after the completion of the novel.
