Help me give my students their own copy of "The Giver" so they can delve deep into the characters and meaning behind Lois Lowry's greatest piece of work and show their artistic interpretation through oil pastels.
Located in a suburb of San Diego, CA, my twenty-nine 6th grade students learn in a diverse setting filled with opportunity. Our Title 1 elementary school has special day classes, English only classes, Spanish Dual Immersion classes, and a preschool. My students see and interact with diverse students and teachers with various specialized needs on a daily basis.
My students clearly embody passionate young minds who are vocal, artistic, and informed on current events.
They love to discuss their opinions and make connections in the classroom to real world situations. I am passionate in bringing relevant topics that will engage their thinking, open them up to new ideas, and empower their learning. Helping mold my students to become informed, confident, creative thinkers is one of my highest priorities before they graduate elementary school and head off into the unpredictable world of middle school.
By students each having their own copies of the book, they are able to follow along and visualize the text as well as pick up on any unique spelling, wording, or writing in the text. Oil pastels will be used as a culminating project to show their understanding of the major themes of the book as well as connections made through the characters.
Giving each student their own book, puts power and critical thinking in their hands.
Students will be able to reread chapters as needed, analyze characters more in depth, and examine Lois Lowry's writing style. This will especially help my English learners and students with disabilities. Students will also be exposed to other books with a similar genre and themes in hopes that they find a new book or author they want to learn more about.
