Lesson 13: include facts and opinion in a newspaper report
In this lesson you will:
Read The Fairgrounds to Home. You can listen here.
Think about what happened leading up to and including Auggie's run-in with the other children.
Create a timeline and add the main events, in chronological order. You could start with arriving at the the camp and end with Auggie's hearing aids being found.
You are going to write a newspaper article about the events in The Fairground, up to the conclusion of the hearing aids being discovered in the locker. Before you do that, you need to prepare and to plan.
Choose 3 characters from the story (one of them must be Auggie, one must be from the group that picked on Auggie and his friends and the third should either be one of Auggie's friends or one of the adults with Auggie. Write each name in the centre of a piece of paper and then make notes about the incident from that person's perspective (from their point of view).
Repeat this for each of the three characters you have chosen.
Make sure you complete the direct and reported speech lesson
before the next Wonder lesson.
