PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a teaching unit to accompany Christopher Paul Curtis’ novel Bud, Not Buddy. Included you will find ready-made, Common Core aligned handouts to help you cover many Common Core standards. Students will examine elements such as point of view, imagery, irony, and theme. With these handouts, students will also take a look at the author’s craft by analyzing things such as characterization and figurative language. Writing opportunities are woven into the unit as well, and there is also a fun readers’ theater activity and of course, tests! Everything is ready for you to print and teach! The best part is that once you purchase this unit, you can use it for years and years.
This unit will work well for a whole-class read, as an independent novel study, or for literature circles!
