This is an anticipation guide for The Giver. Included are 12 statements students must thoughtfully consider and choose whether to agree or disagree.
An anticipation guide is a pre-reading activity that challenges students' preconceived notions and builds curiosity for the book. This activity encourages a lot of discussion among students about their beliefs and thoughts on themes that are explored in the novel.
You can conduct this lesson as a whole or small group discussion. Some teachers have students write out their responses to each statement prior to discussion; it's up to you!
The document is fully editable so you can add or alter statements as you see fit.
