The Giver - Persuasive Writing Task - Travel Brochure
This is a persuasive writing task based on The Giver (primarily after Chapters 1 to 6) that I have used for many years. This project could also be used as a final or summative task - easily adapted - super engaging and speedy grading!
Students are to create a travel brochure for The Community by using persuasive language and effective visual communication.
Through this task, students are able to not only be assessed on persuasive writing and visual communication skills, but also their overall understanding of the text.
Attached is the task sheet, rubric, a brochure checklist, and 9 different student samples - great for using as exemplars, students can get familiar with grading criteria.
Suitable for any upper middle school level English (including Common Core State Standards) or IB MYP Language and Literature curriculum.
