Hunger Games
Hunger Games | Suzanne Collins
16-year-old Katniss Everdeen regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. But Katniss has been close to death before and survival, for her, is second nature.

The Hunger Games written by Suzanne Collins is a SF novel that would be a great LC or IR in your classroom. The book is about a young girl named Katniss Everdeen and 23 other kids who fight for their life to survive the Hunger Games, only one is allowed to come out alive. Award: Hal Clement Award

AlyssaB An UDL strategy would be 7.3 minimize threats and distraction. An ESOL strategy would be 3 encourage self-talk. A great resource would be http://teacher.scholastic.com/resources/hunger-games-for-teachers/ which gives resources on all three books. #UCFLAE3414F19 3d

Winning the Hal Clement and Dorothy Canfield Fisher awards, The Hunger Games book 1 is a SF novel that is near and dear to my heart and I feel would be a great addition to an elementary classroom. Revolving around a girl named Katniss who lives in District 12 under the Capital‘s rule in a nation that lies in the ruins of North America, readers follow her journey taken as she volunteers as tribute in a “fight to the death” match. #UCFLAE3414F19

TristanPool This book would be best used as a LC to promote a deeper understanding of the book‘s text features. UDL 3.2 with EL 6 would be a great pair to use for the LC as the students are presented with highlighted features and the teacher can continually monitor student comprehension. 7d
TristanPool https://www.lacoe.edu/portals/0/lacoe/jcs/hunger%20games%20curr.%20guide.pdf is a great resource to use as it provides a weekly lesson overview aligned with standards that can be easily transformed and transferred to an elementary classroom. 7d

This book was a great book I would rate it 5/10 I would highly recommend this to anyone who like book about action/adventure this book is about a girl named Katniss Everdeen who lives alone with her mother and little sister . In the beginning of the book it talks about the reaping the reaping is where they pick out a random name for the girls and the boy to fight to the death in the games.the mood of the book is happy and sad this is a great book

MissYaremcio Good review Jager! Make sure you include the right parts of the assignment in your next post (you included the mood instead of pacing)! 2w

This is a science fiction about a girl named Katniss Everdeen and her fight for survival as she and 23 other kids fight to the death in the hunger games. This would be a great book to use for a dramatic reenactment to use in a middle or high school setting. #ucflae3414f19

ChrisC A good ELL strategy would be to place language in meaningful context so a student become successful language learners. The UDL principle to use would be 3.3 guide information processing, visualization, and manipulation to help with comprehension. 3w

Well done! This was absolutely the best book I‘ve ever read. The book is about a girl named Katniss who has to go in the hunger games... and battles people from other districts. It‘s filled with romance and action. I can‘t say more because I would spoil it for sure. I would recommend this to anyone. Everyone must read this because it‘s SO good! I can‘t wait to read the next two books. I would rate this a 10/10.

Cfischbuch One of my all time favourites. I hope it will be one of yours too. 3w

Was trying to find something that is from a different series than ones I‘ve already used for #gory. All of these characters died in the first book. Marvel‘s death was quick, but the rest were gory, esp in the book. This series has a lot of horrific deaths (RIP Finnick).

Buechersuechtling @Rachel.Rencher But no, honestly, I can‘t imagine that this will be as captivating as the trilogy was for me. As far as I read there shall be a moral component to it like “How do we want to live? Who are we and what do we consider necessary to survive?” but at the moment I really can‘t see how this can lead to an overall enthralling story when it‘s – again – mainly set in a Hunger-Games-Arena … 🤷🏽‍♀️ 1mo

Buechersuechtling Yeah, I feel the same. I mean, what do they mean❓ I did a quick research and it seems there will be a fourth volume. No sequel but a prequel to the “Hunger Games”. The story shall be set 64 years before the plot so far and tell about the “Dark Era” – a period of an unsuccessful rebellion in Panem. (Which I don‘t remember to have read about in the trilogy. Did I just forget❓🤔) But anyway, thanks a lot for your post. 1mo

A prequel to the triology was announced andirons not sure how I feel about this since it‘s been years from when the last book was written and when the last movie was released.

Maybe I am feeling this way cause I‘m reading The Testaments now and if you‘ve read The Testaments maybe you know what I‘m talking about.

What do you feel about this?

pilardib I'm curious to say the least. I really enjoyed the first and second books of the trilogy. And I also love prequels so... let's see :P 1mo
cherinium I know what you mean about The Testaments. I felt like it ruined the scary, mysterious vibe of Offred's story by answering too many questions. I think I'm more ok with this since it's a prequel, though. (Also, it's been many years since this world was visited on screen.) There's something different about that than a sequel that wasn't needed clearly written just to profit off the success of a tv show. 1mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @cherinium you make some good points and have changed my mind. This is what I love about litsy! I was on the fence because I was thinking “it‘s been so long!” But you make such an excellent point when you say it has been years since the movie so this doesn‘t feel like a new release just for profits. 1mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @pilardib let‘s hope it‘s good! 🤞🏼 1mo
cherinium @That-Bookish-Hiker Well, changing your mind was not my intention, but I agree that Litsy is a great platform for us to express our differing opinions. And if it does result in changed minds, there's nothing wrong with that! Having a mind open to change is so rare these days. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if this new glimpse into Panem is worthwhile! 💕 1mo

Very, very late on this bandwagon. However, the first book wasn‘t too bad. It isn‘t my typical read however, but I really liked it. I‘ve just got the other two to read now and I‘m hoping they‘re just as good. Really surprised that I found this so entertaining!

My impressions of the book were definitely coloured by the film and, in an unexpected plot twist, I actually thought the film was better. The film had a subtlety that you just can‘t get when the teenage protagonist is spoon-feeding to you her every supposition. I probably wouldn‘t read The Hunger Games again but I‘d happily give my copy to a 13-year-old cousin. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/the-hunger-games-suzanne-collins/

A perfect example telling you that a book is always better than the movie. This book is definitely worth reading. Teenagers and adults enjoy every inch of it. Usually, I need to read a minimum of 50-60 pages of a book to hold onto it for long. But, this book keeps you intrigued from the beginning itself. I was able to get this book done in just 3 days. You can't keep it aside once you start it. It's a brilliant start for the trilogy!

The movie has been on the tv quite often recently so I wanted to revisit Panem. I'd forgotten how much I disliked Katniss, all the while I was thinking it was because of Jennifer Lawrence.

I have a smile on my face! What an awesome story! Literally, the entire book, I felt like I was watching a movie! And I‘ve never seen the Hunger Games movies. I feel like I know Katniss, the main character, personally, and I can‘t help but to root for her. I went on her journey, her amazing story about her challenges and struggles in District 12, to becoming famous. This is a must read!! 🔥🔥🔥 #thehungergames #catchingfire #mustread

3,5 stars. Was never supposed to read this book because you can‘t really sell me anything with “sci-fi and dystopia”. It was better than I expected, but I will not jump on the hype train. You pretty much know the outcome of the story. You only get to really know a few characters. I‘m sure it works for YA readers, but it lacked something essential, if you ask me. Flows quite well, an easy read. I enjoyed the audio version.

The Hunger Games, a SF trilogy, is a series of novels written by Suzanne Collins. These books are so interesting and allow students to become immersed in a world they could only have imagined. The Hunger Games is a great story that facilitates a lot of great lessons. I think this book would be best read as IR. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees (Cont.) UDL Strategy 5.1 and ESOL strategy 17 would work best with this resource: http://www.scholastic.com/content/collateral_resources/pdf/h/HungerGamesTrilogyD...
This resource is a great place to go to when you would like to discuss this story with your classroom. #ucflae3414su19

DrSpalding While not for young children, as we discussed in class many upper elementary children have read this trilogy and/or seen the movies. It‘s important to know what students are reading and seeing! As a teacher, I would not use this until middle or high school. 3mo
