Here are unit plans for the novel The Giver by Lois Lowry. The unit consists of around 12 lessons, one lesson covering at 1-2 chapters. Each lesson is Common Core-aligned and consists of some type of interactive learning structure building on a reading skill like characterization, making inferences, determining theme, or analyzing craft and structure moves. The lessons provided are for the teacher and need to be modified simply by removing the annotated teacher moves and desired student responses highlighted in yellow. The structure of the lessons and overall unit allows for extension and flexibility.
