Product Description
The relevance of the apple in The Giver (Chapter 4) can be explored deeper through discussing Milton’s “Paradise Lost”. This activity should be given at the conclusion of the students finishing Chapter 4 of The Giver.

Have students Mark the Text (see directions) as you read this Sparknotes Summary of Milton’s “Paradise Lost” out loud to them. Stop periodically and discuss meaning. Students should also be writing questions they have in the side area or writing their own summary of what is going on it “Paradise Lost”.

At the conclusion of reading this story, compare the impact of the apple in “Paradise Lost” and what it means in today’s culture. Brainstorm on the board places that use the “apple” as a symbol and discuss WHY that might be the symbol, based on what they know about “Paradise Lost”. Then, discuss in more detail what the apple means in The Giver.

Finally, as a check for comprehension, have student complete the storyboarding activity at the end where students basically write and draw in 8 different boxes what went on in “Paradise Lost”.
