How do adolescents respond to difference? What choices do they make to “fit in?” The best-selling young adult novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio explores these questions through the lens of Auggie Pullman, a young man whose craniofacial anomalies have kept him out of public school until the fifth grade. By following Auggie as he navigates school for the first time, students are able to wrestle with the implications of membership and belonging.

In this workshop you will:

  • Discover new teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources aligned with Common Core Standards that will support bringing Wonder into your classroom.
  • Explore topics such as identity, membership and belonging, and choosing to stand up for others.
  • Receive a complimentary copy of the book.

There is a fee of $10 for this workshop. Register here. Seating is limited so please register by December 5. 

HMTC is happy to host this workshop on Wonder, which is a great complement to our education programs on tolerance and anti-bias.
