What is a Rule? engages students in exploring the laws and rules that help us to work together as a group. The curriculum focuses on four central questions: What is a rule? Why do we need rules? Who makes the rules? What is a good reason to challenge a rule? Through literature such as Charlotte Zolotow’s William’s Doll, The Story of Ruby Bridges by Robert Coles, and King of the Playground by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, students develop literacy skills while tackling questions relevant to their lives, their classrooms, and their country.
