You can make your students' understanding of The Giver, by Lois Lowry, more meaningful by using Dr. Sandra Kaplan's Depth and Complexity categories for discussion. Terri Eichholz has created a resource that uses 6 of these: Details, Rules, Ethics, Unanswered Questions, Big Idea, and Relate over Time. There are three tiers for each category, allowing you to differentiate for the different learners you have in a school or in a classroom.
