Product Description
Use The Giver as a mentor text for creative writing – help students write beautiful narratives “transmitting” memories to each other (or to Jonas)!

In this assignment, students can EITHER write a deleted scene from The Giver (transmitting a new memory or experience to Jonas), OR write a real memory from their own past (that is being preserved and given to US instead of Jonas). Students are fully scaffolded through the entire brainstorming, drafting, and editing process.

(Side note: I’m obsessed with this assignment because of HOW GOOD my student drafts turn out every year, even from students who don’t usually enjoy or succeed with narrative writing. We usually complete this assignment in the MIDDLE of our Giver unit, sometime after chapter 16, once students understand the memory transmission concept.)

This 7-page, EDITABLE download includes…
• A brief Teacher’s Guide
• Introduction/directions
• 3 prompt options
• Rubric: CCSS-aligned
• Brainstorming sheet
• Peer editing & feedback activity
• BONUS: Mini-lesson reviewing dialogue rules/formatting in fiction (because, for some reason, my students always need this)

NOTE: This product is INCLUDED in my full The Giver Novel Unit!
