    I have to intro. my 7th graders to Bud, Not Buddy through a small short story unit. I would like to reflect a variety of viewpoints, such as (but not limited to...) life as a minority, life in the 1930s, an orphan, etc.

    ANY suggestions???? Help!
    Thanks so much!!!!

    When I read this novel in the past, I used the following supplemental materials:

    Royal Garden Blues (words and music by Clarence and Spencer Williams)
    Moazrt's Early Years (Steve Boerner)
    How the Great Depression Changed Detroit (Jenny Nolan, The Detroit News)
    Black Boy (Richard Wright)
    The Life of A. Phillip Randolph (Kate Tuttle)
    An Hour with Abuelo (Judith Cofer)

    While most of these are excerpts from novels (not short stories), I would be happy to share with you the connections if you are interested...
