Storyboard Description

Student activity: Making text connections in Divergent by Veronica Roth

Storyboard Text

  • Jonas, you have been selected as the new receiver.
  • Tris's struggle to decide which faction to join reminds me of my own decision about which sport to play. I have played soccer and done swim for years, but I could only choose one this year. It was a hard decision. I wish I could have taken an aptitude test like in "Divergent"!
  • Divergent reminds me of the book "The Giver". In "The Giver", teenagers are given their future occupations at the Ceremony of Twelve. They then have to learn the language and habits of that profession. This is similar to Choosing Day in "Divergent", when all the sixteen-year-olds choose a faction and begin training for life in that community.
  • Even though it is a science fiction novel, the underlying problem in "Divergent" is a real-world one: how can we develop a peaceful society? The community in "Divergent" created the factions to eliminate civil unrest and allow society to function smoothly. Differences in opinions and lifestyles create conflicts in our world every day, causing riots, crime, and even civil wars.
