Chermaine Frempong Unit 1 presentation

  1. 1. AdversityChermaine Frempong10/25/12
  2. 2. The Giver Jonas’s Adversity: Jonas is now realizing that his community is not the same as he once thought it was. Now that he is receiving memories he notices weird and unfair things and does not like his communities ways. The community had families set up the same way and only the giver and receiver are able to feel emotions like pain, love, and hate due to the memories. To Jonas its just not fair.
  3. 3. The Giver Overcoming the Adversity: Jonas could not persuade the counsel to change the rules and ways of the community so he ran away with a baby who was about to be released. He took memories with him so that the community would suffer.
  4. 4. Zebra Zebra’s Adversity: Zebra loved to run. Every time he would he felt free. One day when Zebra was running he was hit by a car. Zebra injured his arm and leg. He would no longer run. Zebra is now left with a broken arm and a lost passion for running.
  5. 5. Zebra Overcoming the adversity: Zebra meets a man named John Wilson. John Wilson was in the Vietnam War. In that war he lost his arm. With this relatable disability John Wilson inspires Zebra and he overcomes his fear of that hill where he was hit.
  6. 6. A Crush Ernie’s Adversity: Ernie is mentally slow. He is not stupid but he does not progress as fast as others. Because of this Ernie needs special help. Without the support of his mother, who recently passed away, Ernie is moved to a home that helps people with the similar problem. There, Ernie then meets a friend who takes him out to town and shows him around different places. While out Ernie spots Delores, a woman working in a shop, and realizes he has a crush.
  7. 7. A Crush Overcoming the adversity: Ernie then starts sending Delores dozens of flowers that he has grown by himself. Ernie never tells that the flowers are from him or that he even has a crush on Delores. Hinting from the gesture Delores starts to dress up nicely waiting for the man behind the flowers.
  8. 8. All Together All the characters from this story show that they have courage and that even though they go through tough situations they find a way to overcome them. Each characters story is different but in the end they all pull through whatever challenge they face.
