The Giver: Chapters 1-5 A. Questions 1.The arrival of a jet might be a terrifying experience for the entire community because they do not see jets very often only when a cargo plane is dropping off supplies. It also might make it more terrifying for the community because nothing unordinary ever happens so they are taking the jet very seriously and making sure everyone goes indoors. 2. I think that when someone is released from the community they are sent out of the community to live somewhere else. (eg. a place similar place to the community but less organized and filled with bad people and the old people that were sent out.) 3. What I learned about the community during the ritual telling of feelings is that her is more than one …show more content…
Two things that the committee considers when giving children their life assignments is what they enjoy doing and what they are good at doing. For example Jonas’s dad always would be at the nurturing center helping out when his friends were out playing. His dad also was good with the newborns, so the elders picked that his assignment would be norturor. B. Literary Devices 1. The hook in the giver is how there is a lot of mysteries like how you don't know what happens to people when they get released and why the apple was acting weird in Jonas’s hand. There is a lot of things you don't know yet like what jonas’s assignment is, Things like that is what draws people into the novel and makes them want to read more. 2. The cliffhanger In chapter two was that jonas was unsure of what his assignment would be and had a long talk with his parents. This cliffhanger makes you want to read on because you are interested in what jonas’s assignment is. You want to know what it will be. 3. I think that Lois Lowry chose Jonas as the main character's name because in the bible Jonah was commissioned by the lord to proclaim judgment upon a sinful city, and i think that jonas is going to realise that the communities way of life is very unfair and is not okay. I think that Jonas will try to change how the community is. Just like how Jonah proclaimed judgment upon a sinful city in the

If you were abducted and sent off to a Holocaust concentration camp, would you survive? Night, a novel written by a man who has experienced just that, a man that goes by the name of Elie Wiesel. Elie Wiesel was just an average boy, in an average home. In a couple years, his life changed forever, and he experienced true hell. Nothing was covered up in this story, everything was revealed.
First of all, one of the most recognizable theme in the Giver is the importance of the memories. The whole community is isolated from the memories and thet don 't even know what memories mean. Lowry has inspired to use this idea when her father got a disease and had gaps between his hort term memory. When her father had this issue, she wanted to create a fictional world where no one had any memories.
The rules in The Giver society are very diverse from the modern day society. There rules contain no individuality, you are always on a surveillance camera. If you break a rule very low in the ranking then they come on with a intercom and make a big deal, but on the other hand in today 's modern society they will give you a slight warning and go along with your day like nothing happened, Instead of everyone looking at you like your a punk. “ Attention this is reminder that to male elevens that objects are
Wars have been fought. People have gone mad. The entire world cannot seem to agree on the answer to one question: what is the meaning of life? In Lois Lowry’s novel The Giver, the community and the Elders who run it have their own answer-- to be a part of society and keep the community “perfect”.
If they are ready to leave and die they have to apply for release. When the Giver and Jonas were in the Annex room the Giver said, “When the speaker notified me that Rosemary had applied for release, they turned on the tape and showed me the process”(Lowry 151). When somebody applies for release they have a tape of it so that the Giver can see. They are not allowed to choose their spouse either. They have to apply for their spouses that are picked for them.
One major theme in "The Giver" is the value of an individual. The author points out that when people are unable to experience pain, their individual is devalued. Another example is "The Giver's" character insight. Life in Jonas's (the main character) community is predictable, and unchanging, so are the people who live in the community. Which makes some of the characters uncomplicated.
1. What do you find is the most crucial in the plot in Chapter 1? I believe that the introduction of Jordan and the great Gatsby are the most crucial to the plot for chapter 1. This is because the Gatsby is the most mysterious character so far(and the book is named after him).
If you break the rules you will be caught and their is no room for forgiveness. Also, if you are diagnosed with a disease, or just simply sick, you must likely will be released into the “elsewhere” world. The Giver is a novel which belongs to the fiction genre. The novel is written by author Lois Lowry, and
When Jonas leaves the community he accomplishes going to a place with warmth, love, color. Jonas hopes that by leaving the community he is breaking the tradition of the Giver and the Receiver bearing all the memories. .Jonas changes throughout The Giver and as a result, tries to change the community. Jonas is a 12 year old boy with no emotions or feelings.
Now we all no if you have read The Giver then you should know that the government in this book is very controlling. Some things that the families do in this book are not things that we would do today just like “Usually, at the morning ritual when the family members told their dreams, Jonas didn’t contribute much.”(pg 34) This quote shows that their family shares their dreams now I don’t think that’s somthing that we do in 2015. Another Quote from the text is “But what about the treatment?
The Giver written by:Lois Lowry, talks about a way of life within a community built on Sameness. Jonas becomes the Receiver, the person appointed to receive the memories of the World, and begins to question his relationship with his family and the Giver. With the Giver he is free and he can be his own person. He doesn't have to be like every one else, like he does when he's with his family. When Jonas is with the Giver, he can feel all sorts of emotions but when he's with his family, he can't.
“I suppose the genetic scientist are still hard at work trying to work out the kinks out. Hair like Fiona’s must drive them crazy.” (Lowrey 95). Reading The Giver has made me notice that the story’s conflicts are similar than the conflicts in our own world. One of The Giver’s many conflicts is the community making children the same as everyone else by messing with their genetics.
The people in the community isolate themselves from each other as well. Their community is set up so that fives are together, sixes are together, sevens are together and so on. You don’t really interact with anyone of a different age group unless they are your sibling. All you really know is the others in your age group, your sibling, and your parent. You don’t really know anyone else.
