the giver book

I’m stuck on a Philosophy question and need an explanation.

Giver Paper (4 pages minimum, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font)

Write an essay connecting class materials/discussion to Lois Lowry’s The Giver, reflecting on the questions in both A and B:

A. How does Jonas come to an understanding of himself? What role does memory play in this understanding?

B. Does Jonas make the right ethical decision in leaving his community? How does the relationship he has with his community play a role in his coming to that decision?

The essay should relate observations regarding these questions to content from the course texts and discussions. Be sure that the introduction of your paper includes your thesis about each question, and that the body of your paper presents logically constructed arguments to support your theses. Papers should include reference to events, characters, plot/subplots and themes in the novel relevant to your argument, but must not retell the story.

No outside research is required or expected on this assignment, but a close and thoughtful reading of the novel and its relationship to course topics is necessary. Use of any outside materials in your paper should nonetheless use proper citation. (See the Catalog statement on “Plagiarism” in “Class Policies” in syllabus.) Connecting class discussions and other readings will strengthen the essay and is essential for a B-level grade or above on this assignment (see assignment rubric below).
