On one side of the diagram, write Auggie. On the other side, write Jack. On the top write a key event from the story of Wonder that Auggie and Jack narrated a little differently. Explain to the students that you want them to compare and contrast the different points of view of these two characters related to this event. Tell them they are not allowed to talk during this chalk talk. They are only allowed to write to engage in the class discussion. Give about 5 minutes for the chalk talk, and write responses when necessary. Conclude chalk talk by discussing the different things the students wrote.
