Then prompt students to ask questions about what you just read; for example: Why does David behave the way he does? How does Catherine feel about him?

Assign students to read Rules independently. Remind them to keep the Big Question in mind as they read. Write the question on chart paper or have students record it in their reading journals.

Why do you think rules are so important to Catherine? You have to figure out how a character feels or why he or she does something by putting together hints in the story by using both hints from the story and your own past experiences. This is called making inferences.

Use the graphic organizer on the Rules Make Inferences printable to model for students how to make inferences. Project the page on a whiteboard or pass out copies to students.

On pages 2—3, Catherine describes how David behaves at the video store. People do care. Have students fill in the rest of the organizer with inferences based on text clues and their own experiences. Why do you think Catherine chooses Jason as a friend over Kristi at the end of the book?


Do you think she made the right choice? Answers will vary. How does it make Catherine feel? Do you think that may change? Sample answer: It makes Catherine feel resentful. How do these words make him feel? Sample answers: How did you feel about David at the beginning of the book?

Did your feelings about him change by the end of the book? How did your feelings about Jason change as you got to know him better? What are some of the social rules that kids in your school follow—even if the rules are never spoken? Do you think the rules are fair or unfair?

Compare the young characters in Rules with characters from other books, movies, or TV shows. Who is like Catherine? Like Kristi? Like Ryan? Like Jason? Give each student an opportunity to answer the big question.


Encourage students to support their answers with details and evidence from the text. Remind them that there is no one right answer. Then assign students to create their own rulebook about some aspect of their life — in school, at home, on a sports team or other activity, or with friends. Make copies of the Rules Big Activity printable and distribute it to students. Read the directions and answer any questions to clarify the activity.

Content Area Connections Technology Sports and Disabilities Encourage students to research the ways in which technology helps wounded war veterans and other disabled athletes participate in events like marathons. Suggest that they learn more about Achilles International, which provides racing wheelchairs for wounded veterans, or Paralympic athletes.

Encourage students to display and compare their drawings. Explain to students that communities have a legal responsibility to provide equal access for disabled persons.

Suggest that they plan a route around their community for someone like Jason who is in a wheelchair. What barriers would he encounter? What helpful things like ramps and automatic doors are in community buildings? Provide a copy of the book and encourage interested students to keep Catherine and David in mind as they read it.

Have students discuss these questions after reading: What does the book teach about friendship? Challenge students to write a review of the book, giving it a rating from one to four stars. First, have each student create a rating system using stars, deciding what — for them — makes a four-star book as opposed to a one-star book.

Then ask students to rate the book according to their own criteria and write an argument essay that explains their rating.
