Title: The Giver


1
The Giver
  • By Lois Lowry

2
Thematic Study
  • In this extension exercise students will explore
    and discuss various themes from The Giver.
  • Students will complete this exercise by writing a
    personal narrative titled My Perfect Society.

3
Theme 1 Family
  • The families in The Giver are considered
    perfect family units. They consist of a
    mother, father, son, and daughter.
  • What does your family look like?

4
Theme 2 Diversity
  • The community in The Giver is not a diverse
    community. The community strives for sameness.
    Competition is eliminated and everything down to
    climate is controlled.
  • Do we live in a diverse community? If so, what
    types of things make our community diverse?

5
Theme 3 Survival of the Fittest
  • The community in The Giver released those who
    didnt conform to the ideals of the community.
    The young, the old, or those who make mistakes
    and risk the stability of the community are all
    in danger of being released.
  • What are the dangers of living in this type of
    community?

6
Theme 4 Emotions/Feelings
  • The structure of the families in The Giver appear
    to be based on living by the rules. The
    characters rarely show emotions or feelings like
    love.
  • Is this something lost with the memories?
  • How would you feel having to live in this type of
    community?

7
My Perfect Society
  • Write a three paragraph essay telling me what it
    would be like to live in your perfect society.
  • Essay must be respectful to all people mentioned
    in it and must be appropriate to be shared with
    the class.
