Product Description
This resource includes a current events news article and final project to use with the novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry. Students will read the three-page article about the Brittany Maynard case regarding euthanasia and write about the connections in the novel. The project will allow them full creativity to design their own society using the graphic organizer. Students will also be asked to compare their society to the one in The Giver to demonstrate their understanding of the novel.

News Article: A current events news article is used to relate to the concept of release in The Giver. Students will read and discuss the article and then write an extended response related to The Giver. Included is a graphic organizer to guide their writing and a rubric to assess. Use my rubric or the editable one to fit your needs.

Final Project: Students will work independently or in small groups to create their own society. A graphic organizer is included to allow students to plan a location, government, laws, currency, flags, homes, and make connections to the novel. There is also a chart for you, as the teacher, to keep track of student progress. Lastly, a rubric to assess the final project is also included. There is also an option to edit to rubric to fit the needs of your students.

These materials were designed and used with my grade 8 small group and inclusion reading language arts students. I hope that you enjoy this product and find as much success as I did in my classroom.
