PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Hunger Games is an incredibly popular and powerful young adult novel. Using it in your classroom can give you the opportunity to explore many important themes and topics while tapping into your students’ interests. One of the key themes of The Hunger Games is the power the media, especially television, has over people.

In this activity, students will use textual evidence to compare this theme across three readings: the Hunger Games novel by Suzanne Collins, the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, and a CNN news article. Students will not only be exploring a vital and relevant theme (the power of the media) but they will also be practicing analyzing companion texts from different literary types (novel, short story, news article / nonfiction informational text).

This activity includes both a student assignment handout and an answer key.
