Complete the following on a separate sheet of paper (handed out in class today):

Name:
Date:
9/11/17 Wonder Assignment

What’s the difference between the two examples? On a separate piece of paper, bullet differences between the two (three-to-five). Differences might include, but are not limited to, the following: word choice, sentence structure, subject matter, feelings/thoughts/emotions, and interpretations of situations.

1. “That night I [Auggie] cut off the little braid on the back of my head.”
“‘Why did you cut it off?’”
“‘I don’t know,’” I answered.
“‘Did someone make fun of it?’”
“‘No.’”
“‘Did you tell Christopher you were cutting it off?’”
“‘We’re not even friends anymore!’” (Palacio 57).

“When August cut his braid off that night, without an explanation, without telling me beforehand (which was surprising) – or even calling Christopher – I was just so upset I can’t even explain why” (Palacio 97).

2. How does Via’s narrative differ from Miranda’s?
• Pick one chapter from Via’s perspective and another chapter from Miranda and compare (three bullets/chapter) how the narratives differ. You can analyze word choice (diction), syntax (sentence structure), subject matter, feelings/thoughts/emotions, and interpretations of situations.
