The Giver by Lois Lowry is one of the most eye-opening novels of our time. These materials help students to think about the ideas presented within the novel as well as synthesize their own definitions of "utopia."
Materials included allow for freedom within your curriculum. You can choose from an extensive list of activities, organized by specific points in the book, all with their own handouts. One string of activities relate with one another, creating a small project that carries throughout the entire novel, allowing students to create their own utopias.
Two other projects, which are thoroughly described will all important materials to hand out to your students, are available for after you finish reading. One of them includes an expository writing assignment, and the other includes a research component.
There are also two different packets you can give students depending on their ability and readiness level--one which just ensures comprehension with a few higher-order questions, and another which asks students to really engage with the novel.
In addition to the packet, there is a list of difficult vocabulary terms and their definitions, arranged by chapter, so students can get the most out of their reading.
Finally, printable bookmarks are available to help your students keep track of when different portions of the text are due.
