A Coggle Diagram about Ceremonies (I think that these are good stages in life to celebrate making it through the grade)
(Lily - Jonas’s seven-year-old sister. She is a chatterbox and does not know quite when to keep her mouth shut, but she is also extremely practical and well-informed for a little girl.
, Gabriel - The newchild that Jonas’s family cares for at night. He is sweet and adorable during the day, but has trouble sleeping at night unless Jonas puts him to sleep with some memories. He and Jonas become very close.
, Jonas’s mother - A practical, pleasant woman with an important position at the Department of Justice. Jonas’s mother takes her work seriously, hoping to help people who break rules see the error of their ways. She frequently gives Jonas advice about the worries and fears he faces as he grows up.
, Asher - Jonas’s best friend. Asher is a fun-loving, hasty boy who usually speaks too fast, mixing up his words to the exasperation of his teachers and Jonas. He is assigned the position of Assistant Director of Recreation.
, Jonas’s father - A mild-mannered, tenderhearted Nurturer who works with infants. He is very sweet with his two children. He enjoys his job and takes it very seriously, constantly trying to nurture children who will stay alive until the Ceremony of Names. However, even if he is attached to a child, he will release it if that seems to be the best decision.
, Fiona - Another of Jonas’s friends. She has red hair, which only Jonas can see, and works as a Caretaker in the House of the Old. She is mild-mannered and patient. Jonas’s first sexual stirrings come in the form of an erotic dream about Fiona.
, The Giver - The old man known in the community as the Receiver of Memory. The Giver has held the community’s collective memory for many years and uses his wisdom to help the Committee of Elders make important decisions.
, The Elder - The elected leader of Jonas’s community. She to shows genuine affection for all of the children at the Ceremony of Twelve, knowing of their names and an anecdote about each one.
and Jonas - The eleven-year-old boy who is the main character in The Giver. Jonas has amazing power, that is why he has been chosen to be the new Receiver of Memory for his community when he turns twelve. Even before his training, Jonas is unusually thoughtful, expresses great concern for his friends and family, and thinks it would be nice to be closer to other people. I think that Jonas is a very nice man that has faced many challenges not only in memory but in life.
(Jonas didn't know if people could see what he saw, glimpses of things called "Color"
, Jonas realized that he was different. I think that the author is trying to say is that everybody is different if they choose to not be like everybody else.
and Jonas tried to figure it out then later he found The Giver who told him what he was seeing and gave him more to figure out himself
(Jonas thought why do we forbid love its a nice feeling and love urges you to do things.
, Jonas' family doesn't know about love and how it works which is very sad because love causes many things to happen
and Loneliness can kill a human because humans need companions which equals love.
(Also I think the author is explaining that some memories can be painful some can be supernatural and some should be shared but can't
, I believe that the other is saying that everybody should have memories cause many are awesome and some will teach them to do those things that caused the feeling of joy
and I think the author is protraing that pain is amazing even though it hurts because it is as good as a teacher because it teaches to never do that thing that caused it ever again
) and Thoughts
(Jonas thinks in ways that make The Giver question what he has been told.
and Jonas wondered why we don't share memories with everybody. I believe that we should share memories so that others have the awesome thought. So make some friends and invite them some place.
