(5 reviews) Write a Review
The Giver unit study guide for literature, from a Christian perspective

Click here for a sample section of the guide!

1994 Newbery Medal winner.
Jonas's community is a perfect society. There is no pain or hunger, everyone is provided for, and there are no problems. Jonas is chosen to be the next Receiver of Memory, the most important member of the Committee of Elders. When Jonas learns all that his society has lost to achieve perfection, he devises a plan to give the memories back to the community so once again, they will all understand right from wrong.
An excellent book choice to teach sanctity of life. Mature themes.

  • Background on the authors and story
  • Prereading suggested activities
  • Vocabulary activities related to the story
  • General content questions
  • Literary analysis and terminology questions designed to give students a good understanding of writing technique and how to use it
  • Critical analysis questions designed to help students consider and analyze the intellectual, moral, and spiritual issues in the story and weigh them with reference to scripture
  • and, of course, a detailed answer key!

    The materials look like they will be very useful. I am looking forward to using them in my classroom. I appreciate having bible references in the questions. There are a lot of faith/morality issues to discuss when reading this book with students.
