Teachers! Grab this hyperdoc to go along with your close reading of the novel Wonder by RJ Palacio!
--What is a hyperdoc?
A hyperdoc allows you to integrate digital resources and establish a blended learning environment. Embedded within the digital resource you will find different media formats, guided close readings for independent practice, sentence frames, and constructed responses to demonstrate understanding. Hyperlinks take students to articles and selected passages of WONDER.
--How does this connect to Wonder?
This resource uses the chapter THE BUS STOP from Wonder and aligns it with the Nonfiction article PUTTING GOOD DEEDS IN HEADLINES through Commonlit.
The hyperdoc comes with a pre-made organizer and sentence frames for applying deeper understanding and critical thinking in the comparison between the two pieces.
--What is the article (nonfiction) comparison piece?
PUTTING GOOD DEEDS IN HEADLINES MAY NOT BE SO GOOD discusses desensitizing society to what is a good or heroic deed versus what is just expected. The article is linked through Commonlit, where teachers can create a free account to use or somply opt to print the article to PDF.
--What is Commonlit?
A free resource for teachers, Commonlit compiles articles, texts, and critical thinking questions. Teachers can create classes (or sync with Google Classroom) and add text-based comprehension and analysis questions to the assignment.
--What are students doing in this comparison?
Students will be asked to consider some of the actions in the novel WONDER and whether or not these are good/heroic deeds or just the right thing to do. The teacher can decide if students should be using text evidence, or summarizing the text in their own words.
Students will need:
*A platform for distributing (either through a digitalized learning network like Google Classroom or sharing of the link).
*Common Core Standards covered include using text evidence, applying understanding and meaning across texts, and examining both literary fiction and nonfiction.
*This assignment is easily modified, distributed, and appropriate for different age groups.
