    THE GIVER UNIT PACKET:

    This is a UNIT PACKET for The Giver by Lois Lowry. All activities were created to encourage creativity, deep thinking, and comprehension of the novel.

    REVIEWS:

    "Your ideas for the novel The Giver are very creative. I love the PowerPoint and notes for understanding character. The mock ceremony of 12 I had done the part 1 before, but not Part 2 having the students write an acceptance or appeal speech. Love this. My favorite part of the unit is the Timeline activity. I can't wait to use these activities for my novel study."

    "This unit is a great companion for The Giver. The Utopia project really prepared my kids for understanding and grasping the beginning of the book. They loved participating in the Mock Ceremony, and I heard them making many connections. The vocabulary words have helped me focus on implementing new strategies, and the discussion questions have been very insightful as well."

    THE PACKET INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:

    1) TIMELINE UNIT PROJECT

    This project encourages student engagement throughout the entire progression of the novel. It includes a guideline with instructions for the students, a graphic organizer for note-taking, and an easy-to-grade rubric for you.This can be done individually, in pairs, or in groups.

    2) MOCK CEREMONY OF TWELVE

    The most fun you'll have all year...

    This is a fun and engaging activity to do with your students as you read. This Mock Ceremony allows your students to actively engage with the novel as they play the roles as citizens of the community.

    There is a writing portion of the activity that encourages persuasive writing, as well as a public speaking aspect. The packet includes instructions and a "script" for you, guidelines and worksheets for the students, and job assignments.

    3) CHAPTER DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

    This is a packet of over 50 chapter questions that can be used as a tool for you to facilitate class discussion and/or given to your students for individual reflection. The questions are reflective of main points or themes that require critical thinking skills. Many of the questions challenge students to think outside of the novel and reflect on our own society and encourage growth as individuals.

    4) CHAPTER VOCABULARY GRAPHIC ORGANIZER

    This is a comprehensive unit packet of Vocabulary with over 50 Vocabulary terms used in the novel. Providing students with this packet allows for closer reading and engagement with the novel.

    The Vocabulary Graphic Organizer is a column chart that instructs the students to write how the word is used in context with the book (page numbers included), provide a definition, and create a new sentence.

    5) 45 QUESTION UNIT EXAM (PLUS ESSAY PROMPT)

    45-Question Unit Exam that includes 25 multiple choice comprehension/critical thinking questions, 15 character and terminology matching questions, and 5 plot diagram questions. Easy-to-read Answer Key.

    Also included is an Essay prompt that may be used as part of the exam (based on how much time your class periods allow for assessment) or assigned as an individual take-home or in-class essay. A Rubric, a Brainstorming Sheet, an Outline Sheet, and a Final Draft Sheet are provided. (The latter three are optional based on your preference.)

    6) STUDENT UTOPIA PROJECT

    Get your students excited about reading this novel by starting off the unit with The Utopia Project. . .While this is a project designed to introduce students to the novel, it may be done during any portion of the unit. The purpose of this project is to not only introduce the novel, but to get your students actively thinking about the setting and theme of a Utopian vs. Dystopian world.

    Included in this product are guidelines to help your students create an advertisement or visual depiction of their perfect, Utopian society. Also included is a Rubric for quick and easy grading.

    7) CHARACTER ANALYSIS/CHARACTERIZATION ACTIVITY

    This is a deeply engaging activity for your students to not only learn how to analyze/characterize literature, but learn how to reflect and grow as individuals through reading.

    Includes Powerpoint, Student Notes, Paragraph/Essay Prompt, Self-Reflection

    8) CHAPTER AND PLOT ENGAGEMENT: MAKING INFERENCES

    Your students will make inferences about the plot based on a short section of the

    novel they are given. Through reading deeply and thinking critically, students will make inferences by answering the questions about his or her section.
