ROGATE 7: The End of The Giver

As we discussed, the ending of The Giver is controversial and somewhat ambiguous. Research what Lois Lowry has said about her ending. Use at least 2 different websites/interviews with the author and write about what she has said. Include the links to each website in your post.

Then, write your own interpretation of the ending. Use direct quotes from the book to support your opinion.

I look forward to reading your posts!

Joyas Voladoras

Write a blog post in response to the essay we read yesterday, Joyas Voladoras, by Brian Doyle. What meaning do you take from it? Is it discouraging and pessimistic or does it make you think about life in a positive way? What are your favorite lines? I would like to just write how you feel about this piece and what it makes you think of. When you're done, comment on at least 2 classmates' posts. I look forward to reading your responses!
