Overview

These thought-provoking writing prompts will deepen readers’ understanding of Lois Lowry’s classic novel, The Giver. Prompts are closely connected to the text and include a wide variety of writing topics. 50 prompts.

Here are two of the many writing ideas you’ll find in Writing Prompts for The Giver:

*Jonas volunteers at many different places before career assignment day. Write entries from a journal he might have kept, describing his experiences at each job.

*Write a persuasive letter to the Committee of Elders explaining why grandparents should be a part of their grandchildren’s lives.

Use the prompts for daily journaling, longer writing assignments, collaborative writing, and short-answer or essay test questions. Many writing topics can also be adapted as discussion questions. However you choose to use them, they’re sure to help readers get the most out of their exploration of The Giver.

Prompts are arranged in chronological order for easy reference and aligned to Common Core State Standards for writing (CCSS). With something for every writer, this booklet is an ideal resource for homeschoolers and classroom teachers.
