The Giver Daily work and tasks Mission #1
  • For this unit, you and your lit circle will be its own unique community. As a community, you will need to decide how you will function, in addition to determining what makes your community unique from the all the rest.
  • You will ALL create a Google Doc with this title: Our Group. Only ONE of you will be selected to share with the class, so it is important that you all have the same information!
  • What to include in your Google Doc:
  • What is the name of your community?
  • Justify your reasoning for this name.
  • What are the rules/policies that govern your community? These rules should be essential to the smooth running of your community.
  • Ridiculous or irrelevant rules should be avoided.
  • What will be the consequences if somebody breaks these rules?
  • The consequences should be logical and “fitting with the crime.”
  • What makes your community unique from the other communities?
  • Think of something that will be unique—handshake, song, cheer, sign, etc. Be prepared to share!
  • Discussion Tasks When you meet in your groups, you will need to prepare ahead of time by completing the following:
  • Reading specific pages
  • TWO discussion questions (see next slide)
  • TWO passages that gave you “cause for pause,” as well as some analysis of the passage Your work should be prepared in a Google Doc. The Google Doc should be titled “Giver Discussion” and it should include ALL of your discussion prep, but be separated/labeled by the date. Each task will be outlined on the following slides. Here are your meeting dates:
  • Friday, May 3 (TOMORROW!)
  • Wednesday, May 8
  • Monday, May 13
  • Discussion Question Types
  • There are a couple different types of discussion questions that you will be responsible for preparing.
  • Make sure that you and your group work together so that each person has a chance to prepare the two different types of questions for each meeting.
  • This is how it should look:
  • Person #1: (2) questions about plot for the first ½ of the assigned reading.
  • Person #2: (2) questions about characters for the first ½ of the assigned reading.
  • Person #3: (2) questions about plot for the second ½ of the assigned reading.
  • Person #4: (2) questions about characters for the second ½ of the assigned reading. *If you are in the group of 3, you can work it out amongst yourself how you will divvy up these tasks.
  • “Cause for Pause” passages
  • The reading level of this book is actually quite low in the LITERAL sense; however, there are many abstract/HOTS concepts and you will be expected to read at that level.
  • As you are reading, be aware of passages where you literally have to stop and think, “Even though I understand all or most of the words on the pages, I think that there might be a concept that is beyond what the words are saying.”
  • For two of these, please do the following:
  • Write down the passage, word for word. Include quotation marks and page numbers.
  • Summarize or “translate” what is happening to the best of your ability. GO BEYOND THE OBVIOUS!
