CHAPTER 7  9 SYMBOLISM Eyes play a significant

CHAPTER 7 9 SYMBOLISM Eyes play a significant symbolic role in this novel. Jonas light eyes immediately distinguish him as unique, and it is almost as if his role as Receiver were predetermined since the Giver also has light eyes. The character of Gabriel also shares this trait. It gives the reader an indication that Gabriel will play a

significant role in the story. Presto Plans CENTRAL IDEA A CENTRAL IDEA IS THE MAIN POINT THE AUTHOR IS MAKING Central Ideas in ALWTW: Children in Sudan face many obstacles just to acquire basic necessities. Salva overcame great hardships with determination and support from others.

In The Giver, one central idea is that to create order, the Community has strict rules. Presto Plans CENTRAL IDEAS ABOUT PAIN The community makes it so that the members feel no pain. Everyone in the community is numb to pain except the Giver and Jonas. To protect its members, the community officials removed pain.

Presto Plans CHAPTER 10 11 CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT The Giver clearly leads a different life than the rest of the community. Firstly, he lives in a luxurious living area which shows the respect and honor that comes with this position. The Giver also has books which are not permitted in other households, and he has the ability to turn off the community announcements.

Presto Plans CHAPTER 10 11 IMPORTANT IDEAS: SAMENESS These chapters introduce the idea of Sameness. This provides a label for the philosophy of the community. The physical sameness of this community is a metaphor for the monotony of life in this society. Presto Plans What Symbols Stand For

A symbol is often an ordinary object, event, person, or animal to which we have attached extraordinary meaning and significance. People throughout history have endowed ordinary objects with meanings far beyond their simple meaning: A crown symbolizes royalty An olive branch symbolizes peace

Five linked rings symbolize the Olympics CHAPTER 12 13 CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT Jonas continues to feel alienated from his community as he starts to understand more about the past. The community insists that language is

precise, but Jonas is now realizing that these emotions have lost their power and meaning. As he begins to feel stronger emotion, he realizes that his family and friends do not feel the same way he does. Presto Plans CHAPTER 12 13 IMPORTANT IDEAS: FREE WILL We gained control of many things. But we had

to let go of others Jonas is angry that the people in his community are not permitted to exercise free will, but this statement shows the emphasis placed on Sameness. The community leaders believe that allowing people to have minor freedoms will make them yearn for more personal freedoms. There is a strict elimination of choice to maintain artificial order. Presto Plans How do we determine SYMBOLISM?

Think about the deeper meaning of a scene Pay attention to things that are repeated Trust your judgment! Presto Plans Think about the SYMBOLISM Turn and Talk: What is wrong with Gabriel? What rule does Jonas break

to comfort him? Why? Presto Plans Think about the SYMBOLISM On your exit ticket, record the symbolism of the event in this chapter. Presto Plans

CHAPTER 14 16 SYMBOLISM Jonas relationship with Gabriel is important with regards to the changes he is experiencing. Jonas is beginning to break rules not only by transmitting memories to Gabriel, but also by forming a close bond with him. Jonas craves a close relationship that his society

discourages. Gabriel becomes a symbol of the hope for change. Presto Plans CHAPTER 14 16 CHARACTERIZATION / THEME The pain that Jonas experiences from The Giver alienates him further from his family and friends. As Jonas receives painful memories, he is able to have more depth and value for pleasure. The binary opposition of pain and pleasure is a theme in this

novel. In order to fully understand one concept, you must experience the other. Presto Plans CHAPTER 14 16 SYMBOLISM Jonas stops taking his stirrings pills not for sexual desire, but because he wants to feel that he is

capable of making his own decisions. This act is symbolic for Jonas asserting his want for change in his community. Presto Plans
