SF novel, Divergent, is another great piece of literature that I would love to include into my classroom library one day! Set in a futuristic, dystopian Chicago, factions are organized and citizens are divided by their lifelong virtue. Children, such as Trish, are raised until 16 and then are given the life-changing choice to either stay with their family or choose a new fate. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool This book would best be presented in a LC for a similar reasoning to The Hunger Games, presenting key features and promoting a deeper understanding to the text. UDL 2.3 and EL 36 can help promote students understanding of the factions used while using a higher-order thinking process. 1w
TristanPool http://ymiclassroom.com/lesson-plans/divergentseries/ is a resource that can be used by teachers with several activities ranging from building on students‘ understandings towards each faction‘s virtues to seeing the conflict and change throughout the storyline. Small changes may be necessary towards each activity to ensure that the knowledge needed to be present in an elementary classroom is successfully formatted. (edited) 1w
Tinks Loved these books. I wouldn't mind reading them again when I find the time. Nice post. 1w

This SF novel is a great IR for the students who are above grade level. It leads you into this alternate view of living where someone is controlling everything you do, including your future. The books are part of a 4 book series that leaves you hanging on the tips of your toes wanting to read the next one! I'm sure once you have your students reading one book they will be begging for the next! Just as I did when I read the series. #ucflae3414f19

YesseniaN The link below provides classroom discussion guides and so much more: https://veronicarothbooks.com/classroom/
The UDL: Provide multiple means of Engagement through Develop self-assessment and reflection (9.3)
ESOL strategy: If you have a student who can read this level of text but struggles with some comprehension I suggest doing a book club center where at least one other student is reading the same book to discuss main events and key factors.

Wanted a different reference for #raven than Edgar Allen Poe. I could only think of two other books I‘ve read that have ravens. One is Divergent, when Tris gets her tattoos representing the family she left behind. #scarathlon @Clwojick #chillingphotochallenge

I think that this might be my favourite book! Divergent is about factions where when you turn 16 you get to choose your own faction. Now it‘s Tris‘ turn to choose. Tris finds out that she is divergent which could be life or death. She chooses dauntless and finds herself mixed with a lot of problems. In order to stay alive her and Four have to risk it all. The genre is science fiction. I recommend this book to people who love action.

MissYaremcio Well done Lina! I loved this book when I was your age!! Do you remember the difference between tone and genre? 1mo

Divergent is a must read.

I‘m so glad I listened to my daughters and read the book enjoyed the movie, but the book lets you get into the thought processes. Futuristic world about to go to war because the utopian set up really wasn‘t perfect.

This SF novel is set in a futuristic, dystopian Chicago, society is organized into five factions. Each faction places value solely on a specific virtue, which its members work to cultivate throughout their lives. There is Abnegation,Amity,Erudite,Candor,and Dauntless. Children are raised in their parents' faction, and once they turn sixteen, they have the option to choose for themselves which faction will be theirs for the rest of their lives.

kkimmelman These activities would be great for students http://ymiclassroom.com/lesson-plans/divergentseries/. This book could be used as LC and UDL 2.3 could go well with the high level thinking this book can sometimes require. ESOL 36 would also be a great accommodation. #LAE3414sp19 7mo

Pretty good, and the narrator did a great job. I knew what to expect - YA dystopian and there were really no surprises there. Interesting concept to divide the population by traits, and the Chicago backdrop was cool. But Lake Michigan as a marsh? Hmmmm. 😂

Probably one of my fastest reads and one of the best books I have ever read! I recommend it for an enthralling adventure to forget everything about your own personal life at the moment.

When you buy a book at Goodwill and find the person donated it becuse the printer made a mistake, you go to the library, check same book out, photocopy the missing page and glue it in. WA!LA! All fixed.

I had to take a break from my Kirsten Hannah books, I love her writing but it‘s way too intense for back to back reading. So I‘m listening to Divergent, I‘ve only ever watched the movies and I love seeing the sometimes subtle sometimes massive differences #booksarebetter #2018 #yearofbooks

This SF series by Veronica Roth will always be one of my favorites! I really loved the first movie but the other ones disappointed me. However, at least I have these amazing books to always fall back on! This series will always be in my heart ❤️ If you love the dystopian world and want to look into Trice Prior‘s life after society is divided into five factions, than definitely give this book a read!

AmyPerezCubas For grades 6-8 and 9-12. There are a lot of activities where you can ask questions during each part of the story. There are also fun surveys your students can do that will actually put them into factions. What is the difference between selflessness and giving? 1y

I thought it was perfectly competent, but I had zero interest in continuing on to the follow ups. It‘s a good enough read, so read it if it is intriguing. I just read all I cared to, and it was good while it lasted.

I love dystopian fiction. The idea of factions were a bit of a cliche, but the author made it work. I enjoyed the way she built this world, and her pacing was immaculate. I watched the movie first, then I had to read the trilogy. It‘s a great book if you have teens. My copy of #Divergent is well-loved. That‘s because 3 people in this house read it: my partner, my daughter, and I. We had animated chats about this, keeping the parent/teen bond tight

I have just read this one in two days. It was a good interlude to my usual heavy political texts. It is not the best written or even the best story but it's interesting enough with some interesting characters. I will finish the series and then get back to my serious non fiction reading.
