Students will review the Extension Task directions and expectations, and discuss their independent reading novels to determine themes the texts convey. They will also begin to compare those themes to The Giver in preparation for the multimedia component of their extension task.

Additional Notes:

Prior to the lesson, review the themes of the novels that your students have read for their independent reading selections. As needed, consult online resources like Shmoop.com or Spark Notes for a quick summary of themes for texts your students have read.
