This is a pack of 6 essay prompts to be used throughout the reading of The Giver. I require 3 paragraphs of my middle school students and we write one essay each week. Since I require 3 paragraphs, I include with my prompts paragraph starters or outlines to get them started.
The prompts require the students to show their understanding of the reading, connect some aspect of the story to their own life and make some sort of judgement.
(I cannot find my other essay prompts for this novel so these all pertain to reading in the first half of the book)
Topics for The Giver essays include:
Rules and Punishments
Rites of Passage
Manners and Policies
