This author of this article compares the current state of America to the society in "The Hunger Games" and argues that America today shows signs of being a dystopian society more so than the society described in "The Hunger Games".

Collaborative Classroom Activity:
This is one of my favorite ways to keep students engaged while reading a challenging, informational text. Students make appointments with other students (using the including "Appointment Tracker") and collaboratively figure out the answers to a number of text dependent questions (at each appointments) after reading the text as a class or in partners.

I have had great experience with this strategy! It gets students excited, allows them to have a variety of partners that they can work with and they are actually reading and responding to informational text!

Things Needed for Assignment and Activity (all included):
• The link to the high-interest article
• 20 text dependent questions that are used for comprehension of the informational text
• Answer key that gives "Possible Student Answers"
