Recently, I took my eleventh grade students to see The Hunger Games. Their assignment was to predict the differences between the movie and book. Did you see the movie after reading the book? If so, feel free to stop by and read some of the students’ reviews of the movie. In addition, Suzanne Collins is a unique writer because she developed a Young Adult Lit. book, where the setting changes around the characters, as opposed to the characters traveling through different settings. Consequently, students have tracked the setting changes by recording quotes, which they are developing into a visual display of the unique changes in surroundings throughout The Hunger Games. I’m excited to see their final projects!
