I am excited! I have read some great reviews on Hunger Games! I am dying to teach it to my tenth graders next semester. The engagement level is high and it offers an interesting spin on the hero’s journey. To add to my excitement, I bought MY FIRST Kindle book—yes—Hunger Games a few weeks ago. To add to my excitement even more, I found some great resources online. I want to share these with you. As I develop my unit, I will peruse these sites and share the best practices, successes, and inevitable failures with you!
This is an entire site devoted to middle and high school teachers who are teaching this text in the class! Awesome!
How cool? The Hunger Games Facebook page is a great way to get students (especially reluctant readers) to start previewing and viewing the comments, trailers, and feedback on the text.
Students actually were assigned to districts and had to get physical…hum…
Who doesn’t need these in some capacity?
Lower level lessons designed for middle school students.
Bright Hub is know for their awesome resources! Scroll down to the bottom of their page for links to other Hunger Game resources as well.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am to read something that might engage students on a real level and allow us to sneak in all of those great analytical, comprehension, and literary skills that, at times, can feel like an uphill battle with reluctant readers.
