My literary analysis interactive notebook flipbook for The Hunger Games (by Suzanne Collins) practices so many essential skills in an easy-to-assemble handy flipbook. I also included traditional handouts for teachers who do not use interactive notebooks.
This story elements literary analysis flipbook includes six sections to use with The Hunger Games:
1. Character Development: Students must analyze how the setting, events, and other characters have influenced each one.
2. Setting: Students analyze how the setting affects the tone of the story, as well as how different themes utilize the setting to convey their messages.
3. Point-of-View: Students evaluate Katniss's narration and how different events, the setting, and other characters impact the way she narrates; students also analyze why the author chose Katniss's perspective and how it influences different themes.
4. Plot Analysis: Students choose different events from the novel and analyze how each contributes to the tension and conflict in the story; students also evaluate the author's structure of the story and why/how Collins uses various literary techniques for storytelling.
5. Literary & Figurative Devices: Students examine the words used in various quotes and how they change or impact the tone and mood of the story; students also identify and explain various figurative language devices such as simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, and imagery.
6. Overall Effects: Students dissect a theme to see which characters, events, and elements of the setting helped deepen the meaning of it.
Students practice higher-level critical-thinking skills which include analysis, synthesis, inference, summarizing, and more.
The activities can be used at ANY point in the novel AND can be REUSED at any point, making them even more versatile. They are perfect for stations, group work, or individual independent reading.
I included detailed sample student responses in a teacher answer key, as well as visual and written directions for printing and assembling the flipbook. The best part is there is NO CUTTING involved! Just print the pages (front/back), stagger them, make one fold, then staple. You don't need glue or tape, either!
