Product Description
The Giver – Exploring an Ethical Dilemma Posed to the Reader by making connections and comparisons to Star Trek.

Students are engaged in examining ethical dilemmas around choosing to dissent, question authority, and potentially interfere with another society or group's rules and development. This sheet gives instructions to teachers and students for how to draw thematic connections to an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation, leading to journal entries and a "fishbowl" discussion.

This is intentionally offered as a relatively plain Word (.docx) document so that teachers can easily convert, cut, paste, edit, and redesign to fit the way they teach.

With simple additions, this could easily become a literary analysis or argument essay prompt, especially if requirements for quotes from both the text and television show are used, for assessment purposes. Note that the "preview" file is a significantly truncated version of the item for purchase.

Thank you for your interest.
