Halfway there! This week, students will be reviewing and collaboratively discussing the first half of the novel and completing a study guide, in order to prepare for a 'halfway there' test.
Students will be responsible for completing all questions in the Study Guide, which they will turn in Wednesday, before the test.
Thursday and Friday, students will watch the film version of The Giver and compare it to the text version, analyzing how fiction draws on themes, patterns of events, or character types to develop the plot in both versions.
