They can then be returned for assessment if needed. Even though these worksheets are not required, they will help students during the live discussions.  
 2 files available upon enrollment
Students will need to have a physical, digital, or audio copy of the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. At this time, no streaming service has the movie. You can rent/buy from Apple TV or Amazon Prime. The movie is rated PG-13.

55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The Hunger Games 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., 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 scenes where kids have to kill kids, but the scenes are not there to glamorize the violence. The violence is there to demonstrate the terrible world these kids inhabit. 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. Everything we discuss will be at an age appropriate level.
