Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(150)
In this 5-week course, let's go back to Panem and the 75th Anniversary of the Hunger Games. We will join Katniss and Peeta on their victory tour, but is it all good? Then we find out what was changed (or didn't change) for the movie.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students can enhance their comprehension of different aspects of a novel, including but not limited to, Point of View (POV), Setting, Plot, Cause and Effect, Symbolism, Theme, Tone, and Mode. By exploring a character's choices within the novel, they will also develop their understanding of cause and effect. Additionally, they will gain insight into the reasoning behind alterations made by screenwriters, directors, and actors when adapting books into films. 
Homework Offered
I will incorporate relevant vocabulary to enrich students' comprehension of the novel. Additionally, I will offer weekly assignments in the classroom that align with the topics we covered. If students or parents would like further assignments to deepen their knowledge, please don't hesitate to reach out to me, and I'll be happy to provide more resources.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The Hunger Games - Catching Fire is a richly layered book that conveys numerous meanings and messages. Although it belongs to the dystopian genre, its themes and issues resonate with our current society, such as rebellion, desensitization to violence on TV, reality shows that exploit human suffering, war, famine, and socioeconomic disparities. While the novel depicts scenes of violence where young individuals are pitted against each other, it does not glorify violence. Rather, it serves as a harrowing reflection of the brutal world these characters inhabit. During our discussions, we will address these violent scenes but delve deeper into the personal values and societal problems that the characters encounter. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email.
