Lesson 14: Preview and Select Independent Reading Novel for Extension Task

Students will preview possible independent reading novels that are thematically linked to The Giver, select their independent reading novels, and set goals for their independent reading in preparation for their Extension Task at the end of the unit.

A downloadable audio recording of The Giver is available here.

Additional Notes:

If you choose to have students rotate and preview books in stations as noted in this lesson, set up an individual station for each novel that students will preview during the class period. At each station, include 5 or 6 copies of the book so that students can preview the novel as they rotate.
