Unplugged

CLASSROOM GUIDE

 

In UNPLUGGED, by Laura Pedersen and illustrated by Penny Weber, Ella is really frustrated. Lately it seems like the whole family has forgotten how to be together. Instead of playing Hangman and making waffles, everyone is talking on cell phones, playing video games, and using the computer. What’s a girl to do? When Ella finally makes her move, it gets everyone’s attention. At first there is some confusion–could Ella just want a cell phone of her own? But Ella makes clear that what she really wants is her family back. Will they all agree that it’s time to make some changes? And what word do you think Ella will use the next time she plays Hangman with her brother Carlos? This is a lively book about the issue of managing technology so that it can become more family  friendly.
