EQ: What historical and modern connections can be made to The Hunger Games, and why are these connections significant? How do you define courage?
This week students will be working with themes from The Hunger Games. Our major theme for this week will be courage. We will continue working with last weeks discussion of the courage scenarios. Students will practice a reaping on Tuesday to get a better sense of the unfairness of the selection for the games and also the amount of courage Katniss shows as a volunteer. Wednesday will mostly be spent with registration, but we may have time to begin writing prompts. These will be discussed in class; they are linked below.
