This file contains a video recap and discussion for the first three chapters of The Giver. The video is ideal for front-loading information before reading the chapter or discussing it in class. ESL students benefit greatly from viewing the information and writing notes in graphic organizers before diving into the novel.
Speaking of graphic organizers.... This file also contains 6 thinking maps:
- characters tree map
- age ceremonies tree map
- community rules circle map
- sequence of events map (one for Chapters 1 and 2, and another for Chapter 3)
- motifs analysis thinking map
Teachers can print these maps for students as they watch the video, or for students to use as they read/listen to the chapters.
