After students have read The Giver give them the opportunity to explore the multiple themes within the novel. This seven page document explains the various theme topics found and requires students to answer questions from the text to help them write the theme in their own words. This packet can be used to write an essay on theme. It can also be used in conjunction with one of the other theme packets on one of the many Dystopian novels available on TPT.
I completed this packet with the students because we read this novel in class. They had an independent reading novel and completed that theme packet on their own. They then wrote essays comparing and contrasting the ways the themes are presented.
