PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Giver is one of my all-time favorite novels to teach because it lends itself to critical thinking and many thoughtful and meaningful class discussions. My students have always enjoyed reading The Giver as much as I enjoy teaching it! If The Giver is in your plans this year, everything you need to teach it well is in this engaging, print-and-go unit!

Description:
This complete, four-week unit on “The Giver” by Lois Lowry includes everything you need to facilitate close reading and critical analysis of “The Giver.”

These plans include several opportunities for writing, all of which prepare the students for meaningful class discussions about the themes of diversity, individuality versus sameness, freedom of choice, wisdom, the importance of memory, the possibility of creating a utopian society, and the advantages and disadvantages of sacrificing personal freedom and individuality to gain a more peaceful society.

Critical thinking questions compel students to extrapolate relevant and appropriate inferences from the story. Structured for quick and easy integration of read-louds, shared reading, independent reading, guided reading, interactive writing, shared writing, and independent writing, making this an ideal unit for the integration of Balanced Literacy, inclusive classrooms, Academic Intervention Services, or tutoring.
