Activity Overview

Wonder is told from multiple points of view. First Auggie, then Via, then other characters. As students read, they'll notice how each of the points of view are important to understanding both Auggie and the people around him. In this activity, students can analyze one of the points of view or they can assess all of them and compare and contrast each element. The example above and the template provided showcase one point of view.

Have students identify quotes from each section of the book that illustrate which point of view the story is being told from, as well as quotes that showcase that character's views on themselves, Auggie, and other students in the school. Students will illustrate key scenes or moments or a general depiction for each quote.

Extended activity: Students may want to integrate Mr. Browne's Precepts into this activity by identifying which precepts the character follows and provide an example of where they do in their section.
