    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    This study guide from Progeny Press, though tackling a slightly different topic, is just as well done. The format is much the same, although it requires three books to use (all of which we offer very inexpensively and are listed below for your convenience). The study guide begins with an introduction to poetry and its historical background. The first part of the book offers a short lesson in types of poetry, and the remaining two parts offer several lessons each. The second part focuses on elements of poetry, and the lessons deal specifically with lines, words, sounds, rhyme, imagery, tone, and other specific poetic elements. The last part in the book looks at designated forms of poetry such as the sonnet, blank verse, ballad, limerick, free verse, etc. The lessons in these two parts both begin with some information in the guide, and then the student is direct to read a poem or two per lesson and answer questions about them. As with Progeny's other guides, these challenge students to think critically about the selections. Scripture based questions are also tied into the themes in "deeper thinking" questions. 84 pages. - Mel
