I also teach Hunger Games; Nature, Culture, Politics, Economy, and Nature where we take a look at various social phenomenon through the lens of the Hunger Games. Suzanne Collins did a fantastic job creating this world and I am grateful to use it as a springboard to discuss large concepts and influences.
