The Giver: Explore that Memory!

Product Description

In this close-reading lesson, students will explore how and why does the novel use descriptive language to help readers visualize the memories Jonas receives, specifically the elephant, the broken bone, and the war memory. Students will first reread a memory passage on their own and reflect on how it makes them feel. They will then pair with classmates who reflected on the same memory to share their feelings, identify the descriptive words that made them feel that way, and discuss what they think is the importance of the memory.

  • title page
