PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Give students a reality check about reality television while reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. These activities and questions have students analyzing and questioning the reality of their reality television shows.

Inspired by Katniss' quote, “whoever puts together the highlights has to choose what sort of story to tell,” this activity will have students seeking commonalities between reality tv in their lives and in the novel.

Students will take notes concerning Katniss, Haymitch, and the Capitol's interference in the production and editing of the 74th Hunger Games and analyze the effect.

Included:
* A notetaking printable and cover sheet for students to personalize with their notes (pictured in thumbnails).
* Common Core Standards.
* Teaching outline.
* Over four pages of examples from the Games of the tributes and their teams manipulating and altering behavior for the cameras. The research is done for you! The examples have the page numbers included.
* Four student worksheets that lead them to analysis: personal background, research, pre-analysis questions, and post-analysis questions. Answer keys included for all.
* Essay questions and a final creative activity to close the unit.

Students look at their life experiences and the experiences from the book in analyzing the reality of reality television. I use this activity as we read the novel.

This is truly a print and teach activity. This bundle is in my larger The Hunger Games Ultimate Unit which contains additional materials at a discounted price.
