1.2. Prerequisites

1.2.1. Review Class discussion on major events/characters

1.2.2. Goals Have students demonstrate independent thinking and team work. Explore their understanding of the overall plot and individual characters.

1.3. Resources

1.3.1. Facilities Classroom Library - for computers

1.3.2. People Classroom Teacher

1.3.3. Materials Wonder, by R. J. Palacio Smartboard - presentations Storybird Google Docs Mind Meister Computers - laptop cart, library, homeroom desktops.

1.4. Notes

1.4.1. Activate Using their Mind Meister accounts students will work to create a concept map in brainstorming mode. The concept map will be dealing with the main characters of the novel "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio. Students will have 20 minutes to work together to list the main characters, their characteristics, major events, and settings.

1.4.2. Acquire Students will select one character from their mind map and one major event that the character was not a part of. The students will use Google Docs to tell the story of that event from that characters perspective.

1.4.3. Apply Using Storybird students will create their alternate version of events and find accompanying artwork. As groups students will share their story with the class.

1.4.4. Assess Students will be assessed on evidence of original thought, correct spelling and grammar, and including all important details from the book in their story entry. Their presentation will be graded on clarity of speech, preparation, and understanding.

1.4.5. Objective Students will create a mind map that details the main characters, characteristics, events, and settings. Using this map students will use Google Docs to cooperatively create an alternative version of events from "Wonder" based on the perspective of another character. Students will then use Storify to bring their tale to life and present it to their classmates.

1.4.6. Rationale for Collaborative Docs Both Mind Meister and Google Docs are a necessary component to this lesson plan because it allows all students to actively participate in brainstorming, and allows all students to contribute to the story even if they aren't all in the same room. (Which was often a problem when using computers in past placements). Students are also all able to see the story unfold as they create it, rather than one student doing all the work.

2. Map Lesson

2.4. Notes

2.4.1. Activate Students will watch a short video on the Fur Trade from the perspective of a First Nations woman, Métis woman, and a First Nations child. Class discussion will follow.

2.4.2. Acquire As a class we will examine the Hudson Bay Trade Routes Map. This delineates the growth of the fur trade including both Hudson Bay Company and the North West Company

2.4.3. Apply Students using My Maps on Google Maps will create a class map of the fur trade. The forts and trading posts will be divided up amongst the students, each student will be responsible for researching it, finding a picture and a description of the fort, as well as where it is located in modern Canada.

2.4.4. Assess Students will be assessed on their participation in watching and discussing the video. Students maps will be assessed on the accuracy of the placement of each fort/trading post, as well as inclusion of a picture relating to the fur trade or location, and at least two facts about the fur trade or location.

2.4.5. Lesson Goal Students will create, using Google Maps, maps of the fur trade growth in Canada as groups. The locations on the route will be annotated with pictures and facts about the fur trade.
