Copy of Wonder by R.J. Palacio - Part Three: Summer
Transcript of Copy of Wonder by R.J. Palacio - Part Three: Summer
Part Three: Summer
At the beginning of this section, the following lyrics from Christina Aguilera's song "Beautiful" are quoted:
You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down
* How do you think these lyrics relate to the story from Summer's perspective? Why would the author choose these specific lyrics?
Auggie mentioned the Cheese Touch back in Part One and said, "At Beecher Prep, I'm the old moldy cheese." Now we learn that the game (and I use that term loosely) is called The Plague. Are you familiar with that term? There have been several outbreaks of the plague, one of which was called the Black Death.
Can you imagine? In places where the death rate was lower, still 20% of the entire population died. In other areas it was from 45-50% all the way up to 75-80%. In a class of 30 students, that could be anywhere from 6 to 24 kids dying from the plague!
And THIS is what kids say can happen if they touch Auggie. Do you think they realize the historical significance of the plague? Do you think they realize how horrible it was and that's why the named their game The Plague, or do you think they just used the term because they thought it was funny? How funny is it?
Summer and Auggie share what their topics are for Egyptian Museum Day. Auggie gets the Step Pyramids of Sakkara and Summer gets Anubis, god of the afterlife.
All the students from the school dressed up in Egyptian costumes for museum day. Summer and Auggie dressed as mummies. I'm not sure what exactly they looked like, but here are a couple of ideas.
