In class we started to discuss The Giver by Lois Lowry. We brainstormed the meaning of "utopia" and I let the group know that the community in The Giver is based on this idea. We started reading Chapter 1 and the 7th graders were already creating post-it notes to ask questions/bring up discussion. They didn't want to put the books down!

Best,
Mrs. Baier
