This story is about a boy that lives during a time of segregation. While reading to the students there will be continuous discussions throughout the book to include anticipation, emphasis of vocabulary, expression of feelings and making connections from Brown v. Board of Education to freedoms, rights discrimination, and segregation. While reading, a chart will be developed to plot the feelings of the main character as his feelings are affected either negative or positive throughout his different experiences.
