Philosophy & the Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(129)
In this 1-week, 3-day class, students will use their prior knowledge of The Hunger Games Trilogy to lay a foundation for understanding philosophy & different philosophical views of hope, fate, luck, & morality.

Class experience

Students will gain a basic knowledge of certain philosophers' views on fate, hope, luck, and morality. These concepts will be made more accessible to students and easier for them to understand because they will be explained through the events, characters, and ideas presented in The Hunger Games Trilogy.
I will address the topics of violence and death in a sensitive and compassionate manner. I have taught works of literature that feature these topics to students in a public school setting, in a co-op setting, and to my own children in a homeschool setting. 

I am a certified teacher and also a writer. I read The Hunger Games Trilogy and also viewed the movies and am quite familiar with the series. I have previously studied philosophy in connection with The Hunger Games.

I will be using the following books as resources: 
The Hunger Games and Philosophy, edited by George A. Dunn and Nicolas Michaud 
The Hunger Games Trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

 I took a Philosophy course in college; this is where my interest in Philosophy first blossomed. I've continued to read books about philosophers and study philosophy ever since. Also, I have taught my homeschooled students Philosophy courses in high school.
A copy of each book in The Hunger Games Trilogy would be helpful, but it is not required. I will provide all other materials.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be scenes of violence and death read and discussed.
