This 3-page Giver Jobs analyzer will help the students keep track of all the various jobs that The Giver's community assigns to young people. Learners will need to describe the job, then analyze what would happen to their community if they didn't assign people to those jobs. This should spur some deeper conversation about the value of all jobs, regardless of what our society (or the one in The Giver) says about their relative importance.
SUGGESTED ACTIVITY IMPLEMENTATION
Students will list the various jobs required and assigned by Jonas’s community. This will lead to a discussion about which jobs are more or less necessary than the others and if any should be given a place of higher honor in Jonas’s society or our society today? The discussion leads to unmentioned jobs that would be important.

WHAT OTHER TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS LITERATURE RESOURCE
♥ I love this unit! I bought a different unit from another provider outside TpT, and comparatively, this one is more creative and definitely more reliable. I haven't had to correct any proofing errors. Love the chosen graphics as well. The Job Description worksheet is clever and has led to interesting discussions. The QuickWrites are thought- and conversation-provoking as well. I'm really enjoying the depth my students and I are achieving together. This package is a great complement to the book as I help usher them into high school and more mature, analytical thinking.
♥ My students FREAKED out over this! Absolutely BRILLIANT unit! Thanks so much!
♥ I love how thorough and creative this unit is. This will be immensely helpful in my classroom and help my students really get into the novel. Thank you!!
♥ All I can say is WOW! There are some really awesome ideas here. Thank you so much for all your hard work. You just made my life easier!
♥ This is impressive. I love the powerpoints and the quick writes. I purchased another unit and this one is by far the most creative, thought provoking, and organized. Every element pushed the student to engage at multiple levels of thinking from concrete recall to analytical.
