Storyboard Text

  • The Ceremony of Twelve had just begun, and the Chief Elder was explaining the responsibility of being a Twelve. The first few sentences of her speech explains how much emphasis was put on similarity.
  • “This is the time,” she began, looking directly at them, “when we acknowledge differences. You elevens have spent all your years till now learning to fit in..."
  • “Didn’t it go well?” Mother asked sympathetically. Father gave a rueful laugh...
  • Over dinner, Jonas’ father had been explaining Gabe’s poor behavior in in the nurturing center. He eventually told the family about the release that was to happen in the future.

  • He had seen a birthday party, with one child singled out and celebrated on his day, so that now he understood the joy of being an individual ...
  • Here, Jonas and the Giver were having another session and Jonas was thinking about all the good memories he had received. The page compares the joy of being an individual and the simplicity of  being a part of the common crowd.
  • Father had gone before the committee with a plea on behalf of Gabriel, who had not yet gained the weight appropriate to his days of life nor begun to sleep soundly enough at night to be placed with his family unit...
  • Further along the paragraph, Jonas explains how Gabe was originally voted to be released, but his father convinced them to let Gabe stay with his family unit for a year... (explanation was too long, look at the table.)
  • Again, acknowledgement of one’s accomplishments is prohibited since it highlights one’s individual success. Independence is not valued at their age.
  • Jonas was impressed by the things Benjamin had achieved. He knew, of course, since they had always been groupmates, but they had never talked about the boy’s accomplishments because such a conversation would have been awkward for Benjamin...
