Transcript of The Giver
My visual aid for Mood and tone would be a video that kids could understand. it shows the emotion and feeling of words.
The Giver is a 1993 USA children's novel by Lois Lowry. It is set in a society which is at first presented as a utopian society and gradually appears more and more dystopian. The novel follows a boy named Jonas through the thirteenth year of his life. The society has eliminated pain and strife by converting to "Sameness," a plan that has also eradicated emotional depth from their lives.
Mood is how the reader feels while reading a book, the mood of The Giver would be apprehensive, because during the book Jonas is aware that something isnt right. Especially when he starts to see flashes of colors. He is in fear when he is selected to be Receiver of Memories.
The tone is how the author makes the readers feel, therefor the tone for this book would be intriguing or intrigued, because Louis Lowery is trying to draw you into her exiting book that has unexpected plot and twists.
Example of Mood/Tone
Heres an example for Mood:
Lets say you read a book about a dog, and at the end of the book the dog dies. How does that make you feel? It should put off a sad feeling.
Well how about if you read a Magazine article about baby kittens, and the article provides pictures. You will feel more up beat and happy then sad.
The theme is what the author is trying to express, or the central idea. The theme for The Giver would be dominant and emotion. Jonas's society is very controlling, there no freedom.
The memories that Jonas receives gives him strong emotion.
I would show the class this Video about theme, and how to understand it.
Example for Theme
An example for Theme:
If i were to give an example to teach a classroom i would decorate the room with green, leafy wallpaper. I would hang butterflies from the ceiling and on the walls. Then i would ask the class what the theme of the room is.
I would explain how that ties in with the theme of a book.
by Louis Lowery
How would i teach this to a second grade class?
I would bring the class cupcakes and ask them how they feel about me bringing them cupcakes. I would explain that that is just like the mood for a book
