The Giver Novel

Help me give my students another opportunity to realize how great reading really is!

My Students

My students are from a rural mountain community in southern Colorado. The nearest stoplight is 37 miles away; that's how rural we are. If it weren't for technology, my students' world view would be much more narrow. Despite our isolation, my kids have a curiosity for the world outside of our beautiful mountains.

I love my kids and want to provide them with every opportunity to expand their view of the world.

Through books and technology, my kids can travel the world.

My Project

I have a class set of The Giver, but they are falling apart. I am almost embarrassed to hand out the editions I have because my kids deserve books that aren't falling apart. Why this novel specifically? It's a thinker. The debates about how the novel actually ends makes my school year!

This novel also challenges students' perception of the world they live in as well as the one Jonah inhabits.

Set in a distopian society, The Giver illustrates what happens when all power is handed over or taken by force. This is a valuable lesson for them to learn.
