SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS
In Jonas's community, the leaders try to minimize characteristics that make people different: they place a high value on "sameness," in appearance and in thinking. In our world most people are pleased to be different in some way. Write a paragraph about a characteristic that you have, personal or physical, that makes you different.
"The Giver" describes a community that many people would consider to be a utopia, or perfect place. Some readers would agree that "The Giver" does indeed represent utopia. Others would argue that it is both imperfect and frightening. Write a multi-paragraph essay to persuade the reader that the community in "The Giver" is IMPERFECT and FRIGHTENING.
