EngageNY Grade 6 ELA: Module 2A, Unit 1: Analyzing Figurative Language, Word Choice, Structure and Meaning

Collector: Ann V.

Christopher Paul Curtis' Newberry Medal winning novel Bud, Not Buddy is the anchor text in a unit that asks middle schoolers to examine Bud's rules to live by. They compare these rules to those in President Barack Obama's 2009 Back-to-School speech and those in Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement address. The unit focuses on developing routines for thinking, talking, and writing about literature.
