Choices- Revisited
  • Now that we know a little more about the choices
    that were made for the community, lets talk a
    little bit about the positives and negatives of
  • Climate Control
  • Sameness
  • Assignments
  • Matching of Spouses
  • Family Units

19
Memories The Good and The Bad
  • Now that we have seen that not all the memories
    are good, does that change your views on the need
    for one person to hold all the memories for the
    community?
  • Why do you think Jonas first lie to his parents
    was important?
  • What do you think Jonas means when he tells Gabe
    that things could change?

  • What do you think will be the outcome of this new
    realization?
  • What would you do?

Final Thoughts
  • Given what you know now about utopias and
    dystopias, how would you classify Jonas
    community? Give me at least two reasons for your
    choice.
  • How does this book effect your views of a perfect
    world?
  • Why do you think this book has been challenged by
    so many people?
