This assessment packet for the novel The Giver provides four separate quizzes for Lois Lowry's Newbery-winning science fiction novel. Each quiz focuses on five or six chapters of the book.
For each quiz, a vocabulary list presents 16 vocabulary words, including the page numbers where they are found. The lists suggest different learning activities for studying that group of words. Each quiz also includes several comprehension questions, highlighting significant events in the plot as well as literary terms (no "gotcha" questions!).
Finally, each assessment requires some open-ended responses. Literary concepts such as character relationships and theme are part of these responses. Several open-ended responses invite students to respond to quotes from the novel, supporting their viewpoints by referring to the novel.
If you would like the Microsoft Word file for these quizzes about The Giver as a companion to this PDF format, allowing you to modify and personalize the tested vocabulary or other items, I will be happy to e-mail it to you free of any additional charges. Just send your request to me at scampbell (at) lfschools.org.
