Wonder: From novel to play

  • Claudia Mewald Pädagogische Hochschule Niederösterreich, Mühlgasse 67, 2500 Baden


This report deals with the planning and implementation of a project in a teacher education programme that brought about the stage performance of “Wonder”, a play adaptation of the children’s novel by R.J Palacio. It describes how trainees with the main subject English analysed the novel to select themes relevant for the stage version, how writing up was organised as collaborative process writing and how a no-budget production of the play that opened the International Week of 2015 was organised.
