​"Wonder": read (aloud) the chapter entitled "Choose Kind" (p. 39/220 on the Chrome counter).


Auggie’s English teacher, Mr. Browne, introduces his students to his love of precepts. Precepts are principles to live by. Mr. Browne’s selections celebrate kindness, hopefulness, the goodness of human beings, the strength of people’s hearts, and the power of people’s wills


"Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together."

                                                                      -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


"Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day."

                                                                      -Sally Koch


Discuss (on paper) each of these precepts. What does each one mean to you? How are they similar, how are they different? How do these precepts relate to each other and to Mr. Browne's September precept: 


"If you have the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind."

                                                                        -Dr. Wayne Dyer
