Activity Overview


Understanding a story's plot is very important. Each piece needs to happen in a particular order for the story to make sense. In Wonder, readers must first be introduced to August and his disorder before we can understand why other children might want to make fun of him. We also need to learn about the way Daisy, Auggie's dog, treats him and how Auggie thinks she sees him, to understand his deep connection to her.

In this activity, students create their own plot diagram of Wonder including Exposition, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution. Each part should be labeled and include text to explain what is happening in each cell.

An alternative plot diagram, as shown below in the example, has a shortened storyboard: Introduction, Climax, and Resolution. This shorter storyboard does not go into as much detail as a traditional plot diagram, but allows students to choose and focus on a defining moment for the climax.

Mr. Tushman congratulates Auggie to the sounds of a standing ovation. Auggie says everyone should get at least one in their lifetime.
