Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Write an Opinion Text of Your Own Rules for Survival Using the book Bud, Not Buddy as a Guide - Section 5: Closure

 

By examining Bud's Rules for Survival and creating their own enabled my scholars to see that we all have our own coping mechanisms to help us get through difficult times in our lives.  The performance task of writing relative to social studies provided my students insight into themselves, their peers, and the main character Bud in the book Bud, Not Buddy.
