As we wrap up our unit of study from the novel, Bud, Not Buddy, it’s time to think about a project that you would like to complete to show your understanding of the concepts learned in your reading. Students will be working on their projects in class and will likely need to do some at home as well. No other reading novel homework will be assigned during this project time. Possible themes include:
Jazz music from the Great Depression Era
Your final projects should include information you learned about a topic or a person through the novel and how this information made you feel about the time in America known as the Great Depression.
