Blog Four: Unity Through Conformity?

There is unity through conformity because then everybody is the same and then they cant make fun or be rude to each other because they are the same "sameness". But also if somebody really mentions anything that is different they would get in trouble. They force each other to be nice which cause unity by making rules.

Blog Three: What If?

I think it would be bad if we didn't know stuff about history because history is really important because you know all the achievements and things people have done to make the world better but there is always some people who did bad stuff in history. Also the inventions they made and all of the mistakes people have made in the past and we can learn from those mistakes so you won't do it again.

Blog Two: Two Worlds Collide

Similarities:

*Dreams

*School

* You can volunteer in stuff


Differences:

* You can any amount of kids you want and any gender (You can't really choose)

* You don't get a job when you are 12 

* We call it Families and they have Family Units


I would rather live in our world because you can experience and see other things that they can't see and it is like you are not being controlled and you can make your own decisions.

Blog Nine: Imagine

In the song Imagine by John Lennon is about a perfect world and there is peace all over the world and there is no killing and many other bad stuff and John Lennon says in his son that they are "formed as one"

The song Imagine relates to The Giver because Jonas kind of lives in a perfect world were there isn't warfare, sadness, death and more. But there world isn't so perfect because they are kind of in rule by the Elders and they don't really have no choice in what they want to do in life.

Blog Eight: Freedom

One of the freedoms granted by the Preamble that is promoting the general welfare by having forces like the Army and other forces that help to protect and serve this country.

I believe that the freedom is good because we have a really good Army to protect us from other things that form a threat to us. Also the police to stop criminals and other bad stuff that there is.

Freedom in The Giver is good because what I know from is that there is no criminals and other bad stuff.

Blog Seven: Jonas' POV change

Jonas point of view is changing because he is starting to know a lot more stuff  than anybody else in they community knows not even the elders who are some really important people. He is also getting knowledge and "power" but The Giver likes to call it honor instead of being power.

Blog Six: New Chapter Title

Chapter 8: Mistake?

I chose this because when they are assigning the jobs in the Ceremony of 12 they skip Jonas and all the other people in the audience also think it is a mistake.

Blog Five: Choices Choices


I would rather live in a community were I would be able to make your own choices and be able to pick stuff that you would want to do for example be able to pick who you love and have as much children as you wish. I wouldn’t want to live in Jonas society because even though it is kind of like a “perfect” society there are many rules and you are living a lot like in dictatorship. In Jonas society cause it doesn’t seem to be crimes and murder and other bad stuff in our society. I would still kind of want to live in our society cause one major thing that you can have is choice which is very important.

Blog One: Career Choices

If somebody chooses your career then you might not like the job and you might want to follow your dreams and do what you like to do. You may also not be very well with the job they give you.


If somebody picked a job for you it might be a good paying job. Also when somebody would give you a  job you wouldn't have to worry about being jobless because they would give you a job.


It might be good if you had a job for a 12 year old then you could have money but then the job might be too hard for a 12 year old and they should also enjoy more of their childhood. You could help your parents with things that they need to pay
