Reviewer Comments:

This well organized resource contains almost 20 useful links to materials and ideas for teaching The Giver.  The first is a link to Lois Lowry’s official site, where she “invites” the viewer into her life and provides messages and background information about herself.   A variety of materials to extend teaching and learning of the book are available through the other sites, i.e. essential questions, plot diagrams, character maps, other graphic organizers, vocabulary, theme, Utopic research.  Lessons on close reading, best practices in reading and writing, related research assignments and other readings, and many other activities are included within this complete resource.   Ideas and materials are rich and thoughtful.
