Lesson 21: Analyze Changes in Jonas’s Perspective; Compare Characters’ Perspectives

Students will summarize Chapters 15 and 16 of The Giver. They will closely read an excerpt from Chapter 16, compare and contrast Jonas’s interactions with The Giver and his parents, and analyze how Jonas’s character and perspective on his community have changed.

A downloadable audio recording of The Giver is available here.
