This comprehension guide takes learning through the beginning background knowledge stage and then into comprehension of the complex ideas in each chapter. Each chapter has comprehension questions, a spot to copy text evidence that summarizes the chapter, and vocabulary. For each vocabulary word, students must define the word and then locate its location in the chapter and copy and properly cite it.
The guide can be used as a whole class, for independent study like homeschool, or in small literature circles.
As a culminating activity, use The Giver timeline project, which is in my products listings. This can be completed on paper or as a computer project.
