The Giver is an amazing novel. It was SO easy to teach setting, conflict, characterization, etc. using this novel, the only problem was that I couldn't find a final exam for this novel that really assessed their understanding and that was aligned to STAAR and the TEKS (7th grade but I believe they can be used for 5-8 because the TEKS are closely related).
I used the released STAAR tests and aligned EVERY question on this test to the novel. I think it's important to prepare the students not only in the skills needed to do well but the format of questioning that they will face on test day.
The test consists of 30 questions that cover the following TEKS: 7.2E Vocabulary
7.6B Conflict, Characterization & Motivations
7.6C Point of View
Fig 19D Inference
7.8A Sensory & Figurative Language
This assessment was a useful tool to check understanding of TEKS and to expose my students to STAAR formatted questions. Feel free to add short answer response questions to accommodate for Pre-AP or 8th grade classrooms.
