Lesson 36: Culminating Writing Task: Revising a Claim and Gathering Evidence

Students begin the writing process to answer the prompt for the Culminating Writing Task: How do Jonas’s experiences develop a theme over the course of The Giver? They draft a claim, revise a claim with given peer feedback, and begin to gather evidence to support the claim.

A downloadable audio recording of The Giver is available here.
