Thisnovel study for The Giver isn't your average novel study. You won't find long lists of chapter questions or daily reading tests. In fact, you won't find tests at all because while this work may keep students busy, it doesn't build transferrable reading skills.
Instead, the format will actually build reading skills and will help your students focus on enjoying the story instead of spending hours responding to lists of surface-level comprehension questions or taking multiple-choice quizzes based on the book that you see in many traditional novel studies.
In this 4-weeknovel study for The Giver, each day's reading is purposefully paired with a core comprehension skill and students combine their understanding of the text and their own thoughts to a single question.
This keeps kids eager to read and helps builds skills that carry with them beyond the book.
