I need some input for Black History Month. This is my first year of teaching and I am looking to purchase a class set of books to depict slavery times for my fifth graders. I have these three books in mind: The Watsons go to Birmingham Bud, Not Buddy Elijah of Buxton I have read them all of them but none recently. I was wondering which would be a better novel study for this important time. Or if there are other suggestions. Has anyone done anything similar? I could also let the students vote....? Input please!
