R.J.Palacio Wonder Scheme of work

R.J.Palacio Wonder Scheme of work

Complete with 11 full lessons from the beginning to the end of the book. I created this scheme of work for a middle-high ability year 7 group as an introduction to language and structure analysis in preparation for their end of topic assessment which focused on the question: How has the writer used language and structure to engage the reader. Some elements such as; dates, reading pages may need to be edited to fit the purpose of your teaching. However, I have found that working through this scheme in this order, prepared students well for their understanding of language and structure when it comes to a narrative story. I hope you find this as useful as I have. Lessons include focus on language techniques, structure techniques, particular chapter and extract analysis, discussion work and reading of the book.
