Transcript of THE GIVER

Chapters 13 and 14
By Nicholas Munce and
Hunter Schaffer
Mrs. Harrison's 5Th period class The Giver This book is written in third person limited.
The narrator can see into Jonas' thoughts, but
the narrator can't see into any other character's
thoughts. Setting
The settings are inside the Giver's office, Jonas' house, all of the places in the memories(hill, battlefield, etc.) and all of this, except for the memories, takes place in the Community, which is a utopian society. In Chapter 13 Jonah learns about the colors Summary of Chapter 13 In these chapters, Jonas begins to see all of the colors in his life, but only briefly. Jonah is frustrated because he wants the opportunity to make his own choices, like choosing to wear a red tunic or a blue one. He expresses his frustration to the Giver, but the Giver points out that people could choose wrong, which could be disastrous. In an effort to let his friends see what he can see, he tries to transmit memories to his friends, which he fails to do. He chooses to not tell anybody that he tried to do that, though. The next day when he goes to his training he receives a memory of an elephant being slaughtered. He tries to transmit the memory of the elephant to his sister, but that fails, too. The next day, he goes to the Giver's office for training once again. The chapter ends when the Giver is about to transmit to Jonah his first memory of pain. This chapter falls on the rising action section in a plot diagram. Summary of Chapter 14 At the beginning of this chapter Jonah receives his first memory of pain. This memory starts out the same as his earliest memory, on a snow covered hill, except this time the hill is frozen over with a sheet of ice. When he slides down the hill, he goes too fast and careens out of control and breaks his leg. In this memory, Jonah perceives a word to describe what he is feeling: fire. After this memory ends, Jonah still feels pain as an after-affect of the pain. Because of this, he asks for some medication, but the Giver tells him no. hhhhhggggggggggkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk llllllllllllll kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk Chapter 14 The chapter begins with the Giver transmitting Jonas's first real memory of pain. The memory starts off on a snowy hill with a red sled, much like his first memory, but instead of powdery snow on the ground, there was a sheet of ice. Jonas descend down the mountain starts out normal, but he picks up speed because of the ice and careens out of control. He falls off the sled and breaks his leg. He compares the pain of breaking his leg to "A hatchet lodged in his leg, slicing through each nerve with a hot blade." He woke up and most of the pain went away, except a fair amount of it lingered, causing him to ache. Jonas asked for some pain medication, but wasn't allowed any. From that day on, every trip to the Giver brought pain. At home, Gabriel (A child that Jonas's family is taking care of) still cries at night. Jonas suggests that they keep Gabriel in his room, to see if that makes a difference. At night, Gabriel wakes up and starts whimpering and flailing about. Jonas lays his hands on Gabriel's back to try to comfort him. He starts to think about a memory that the Giver had recently given him: A memory of a clear blue lake and a sailboat. Unknowingly, he gives this memory to Gabriel. He was frightened by him being able to send memories, but decides not to tell anybody. This chapter falls on the rising action section on a plot diagram. The Conflict The conflict in this book is man vs. self, because Jonas is arguing over with what he grew up with and what the giver is teaching. Jonas also argues with himself over whether people should be able to make their own choices.(page 92 and 93) Tone The tone is uncertainty. Jonas is not sure about whether or not people should be able to make their own choices. (page 92 and 93) He is also uncertain whether or not to tell anybody that he tried to transmit memories. (page 101) THEMES One theme of this story is Choices. An example from the story showing this is on Page 97. It is "Jonas had to stop and think it through. 'If everything is the same, then there aren't any choices! I want to wake up in the morning and decide things! A blue tunic, or a red one?'" Another theme is Sameness. An example of this is at Page 113, where the story says, "'The decision was made long before my time or yours,' The Giver said. 'And before the previous Reciever, and-' He waited. 'Back and back and back.' Jonas repeated the familiar phrase. Figurative Language An example of figurative language falls on page 103. It reads out," It was if a hatchet lay lodged in his leg, slicing through each nerve with a hot blade." This is a simile, and it compared the pain of his leg to a hatchet lodged in his leg. AUTHORS STYLE The authors style is having fragments.. An exampla of this is when the story says "He tried." This has a verb and a subject, but no complete thought, so it is a fragment. Another example of this is "And chose wrong? This has only a verb, so it is a sentence fragment. Big Questions or Enduring Issues It is important to know your history and past because it helps you know what to do or not make the same mistakes in the future. Our memories and history make up who we are. If you didn't have a memory then you couldn't remember who you were, or how to do anything, Our pasts can sometimes show what we are going to do in the future. Knowing the history of your family or country can alter your choices for the better. An example is if you were stuck alone in the jungle, if you didn't learn from mistakes of others which plants were safe to eat or not, you may get very sick from eating the wrong one. On page 109 there is an example of personification. "For a moment he felt a tiny, fluttering hope that he knew was quite foolish." It is personification because hope is an abstract idea and cannot flutter. This is an example of alliteration found on page 101, "He stared at the flat, colorless sky, bringing blue from it, and remembered sunshine until finally, for an instant, he could feel the warmth." This is an alliteration because of the beginning consonant b. This is an example of imagery found on page 97 "There would be a glimpse of green-the landscaped lawn around the Central Plaza; a bush on the riverbank. The bright orange of pumpkins being trucked in from the agricultural fields beyond the community boundary-seen in an instant, a flash of brilliant color, but gone again, returning to their flat and hueless shade." It is imagery because you can imagine or see what the author is trying to portray. Author's Style One thing is Fragments. The author uses many fragments such as "He tried." (page 96) and "Much safer." (Page 100) Ten Question Quiz Ten Question Quiz Question 1: In our summary of chapter 14, what did Jonas think he broke in the memory?
