Students will engage with controversial statements on this anticipation guide in preparation for understanding themes in the novel The Giver, by Lois Lowry.
In my classroom, students individually agree or disagree with the thematic statements, followed by an energetic debate as a whole class.
This anticipation guide includes an option for writing if so desired.
At the end of the novel, students can return to this anticipation guide and see if their opinions have changed, find textual evidence from the novel to support or disagree with the various statements, and/or use the statements to write a theme paragraph or essay.
