Product Description
Anticipation activities are an important part of any novel study, and this is one of my tried-and-true favorites. This four-wall/four-corner interactive activity for The Giver gets students up, moving, and thinking critically about thematic ideas from Lois Lowry's well-known novel through discussion of 22 debatable statements.

Typically, a four-wall discussion serves as an engaging pre-reading activity to help students build their schema for understanding the text. But it doesn't have to end there! As an extension activity, challenge students to take on a character's perspective (or even from the perspective of the author himself) while reading the story, changing the activity from a thematic discussion to character and textual analysis. Students can also return to this activity after reading to see if their initial opinions on the statements have changed.
