Sense of Wonder written by William Preston

 

Sense of Wonder written by William Preston

Overview:

A Sense of Wonder opens the door to the world of modern literature ¿ poetry, short stories, essays, and plays. From the comic metaphors of Pablo Neruda¿s ¿Ode to My Socks,¿ to the touching monologue of Eric Bogosian¿s ¿Bottleman,¿ this multicultural anthology engages students in a way that is personal, meaningful, and enjoyable.

  • Six universal themes ¿ food, love, clothes, growing up, work, life and death ¿ are illustrated through a variety of genres, writing styles, and points of view.
  • Students identify and discuss key literary elements, such as metaphors, similes, personification, mood, and irony.
  • Reading and writing activities range from skill building to creative writing, while discussion activities create opportunities for critical thinking and values clarification.
