The Giver Genre Presentation includes an interactive slideshow to help students understand how The Giver by Lois Lowry incorporates elements of three different fiction genres. Students will learn about the common characteristics of the utopia, dystopia, and science fiction genres and will explore how Lowry weaves these three genres together in the novel. With links to movie trailers that employ these genres, your students will be absolutely hooked and will have a better understanding of each of the genres.

How to use The Giver Genre Presentation:

In preparation for reading the novel, use the first twelve slides of the presentation as an introduction to The Giver. Students will learn about the common characteristics of three genres: utopia, dystopia, and science fiction. Then, they will watch a movie clip that shows these characteristics in action. Then, students will name other movies, shows, or novels that use this genre.

After your students have finished reading The Giver, use the remaining slides to review how Lowry specifically incorporated elements of each of the genres into the novel. Students will examine the setting and plot elements specifically.

What's Teachers Are Saying About The Giver Genre Presentation:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was very well done. Well worth the money. I bought a license for myself and one for my Student Teacher as a gift. My class really got into this and was so excited to read The Giver

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ EXCELLENT! Thanks! If I were going to be teaching this again in the foreseeable future, I would definitely have gone the route of purchasing the whole unit.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LOVE THIS!!! What a great way to start the unit. The PP was modern and used clips from real movies that the students could connect with.
