Students will be watching the movie The Giver  (the book we just read) on Wednesday, November 4th. The movie is rated PG-13. If you DO NOT want your child to watch the movie, print the information below and sign it. Your child will need to bring the slip to school with them, and another assignment will be arranged for them. If your child is V.I.P., they can watch the movie at home on that day with your permission.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

For the last several weeks, our students have been reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. As a culminating activity and to meet reading standard R7.7*, we are planning to view the 2014 movie version and complete graded activities that will focus on comparing the book to the movie, discussing how studios change books to make movies, and how the film versions impact the viewer differently than reading the novel. 

The movie is rated PG-13. If you wish for your child to not participate in the viewing of the film version, please sign the slip below and return it to your student’s ELA teacher as soon as possible.

If you decide that your child should not watch this movie, he or she will be removed from the class each day during viewing and will be required to complete an alternate assignment of equal value. 

Sincerely,

Kristina Peters
