Grade 6 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 2

Students discussing text they've read.

• In the opening of this lesson, students look closely at the new routine in which they examine “Bud’s Rules and Things.” Bud’s rules show up throughout the novel and offer students another insight into him as a character.
• Students are asked to consider what the rule means, how he uses it, and where it may have originated. Bud’s rules will provide a bridge connecting the novel to texts students will be reading in the second half of Unit 1 and in Unit 2.
