Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of various parts of a novel such as Point of View (POV), Setting, Plot, Cause and Effect, Symbolism, Theme, Plot, Tone, and Mode. They will learn cause and effect while discussing a character's decisions in the novel. Students will get a better understanding of why screenwriters, directors, and actors make changes from books to movies. 
Although homework is optional, I will include vocabulary to help the understanding of the novel. For those interested, I will put some assignments in the classroom covering what we went over that week. If you or your student would like more, please let me know and I can provide some.

Students will need to have a physical, digital, or audio copy of the book The Hunger Games - Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. As for the movies, Hulu is streaming them, or you can purchase/rent a copy of both from Apple TV or Amazon Prime (not required for class). These movies are rated PG-13.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The Hunger Games - Mockingjay is a book with many meanings and messages. Although this is a dystopian novel, the problems it reflects can be seen in our current society (i.e., rebellion, desensitization to violence on tv, reality tv shows that blur the lines between real human suffering and being removed from the game, war, famine, haves vs. have-nots). The book has violent war scenes, but the scenes are not there to glamorize the violence. The violence is there to demonstrate the terrible world these kids inhabit and the government they must fight against. We may touch on the violence, but we are going to be looking past the violence and focus more on the personal morals and issues of the characters and the society where they live. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me.
