    • REVIEW  WRITING DIALOGUE
    • AGENDA  Quiz: Vocabulary (chapters 1-4)  Discussion: The Hunger Games: Characters and Events  Presentation: Essay #2  In-Class Writing: page 46 SMG 1. Beginning with a quotation/transitioning to your remembered event.
    • QUIZ  The quiz covers the words from Chapters 1-4.  You will have 15 minutes to complete the quiz.  There are 18 words.  Vocabulary quizzes are worth 125 points of your grade.  There will be 5 vocabulary quizzes.
    • The Hunger Games  Katniss Everdeen  Gale Hawthorne  Peeta Mellark  Prim Everdeen  Mrs. Everdeen  Rue  Haymitch Abernathy  Cinna  Effie Trinket
 In your groups, make a list of one or more important experiences each of these characters has. What kind of emotion does each provoke? Can you relate to any one of these experiences?
    • The Writing Assignment Using The Hunger Games as your starting point, write an essay about an event in your life that will engage readers and that will, at the same time, help them understand the significance of the event. Tell your story dramatically and vividly in 750-1000 words.
    • The Goal: Writing a Good Introduction The Strategy:  Choose a provocative or interesting quotation (four typed lines or more) from The Hunger Games and integrate it into your introduction. You can start with the quotation, or you can work it in after a few sentences.  Summarize what is happening in the novel at the point of your quotation, and then explain the context (particular setting) for the quotation. This is important because it sets up the connection to your own experience.  Then, write a transition paragraph, making a connection between the quotation and the event in your life. Your thesis sentence will likely be the sentence in which you clearly make that connection (we will talk more about theses in our next meeting).
    • Before the opening ceremonies, Katniss meets with her stylist, Cinna, to prepare. Cinna presses a button and a fancy meal of “Chicken and chunks of oranges cooked in a creamy sauce laid on a bed of pearly white grain, tiny green peas and onions, rolls shaped like flowers, and for dessert, a pudding the color of honey” appears (65). Katniss thinks about how difficult it would be to get a meal like this in District 12: What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by? What do they do all day, these people in the Capitol, besides decorating their bodies and waiting around for a new shipment of tributes to roll in and die for their entertainment? I look up and find Cinna‟s eyes trained on mine. „How despicable we must seem to you,‟ he says. (65) Katniss doesn‟t respond to Cinna‟s statement, but she agrees in her head. “He‟s right, though. The whole rotten lot of them is despicable” (65). Although our world does not really consist of a Capitol and many districts, there are still some people who live more comfortably than others. For people like me who live in privilege, life is easy. Food is readily available if I want to eat. Outside of school, I don‟t really have many responsibilities. I don‟t have to worry about how I will survive day to day. My family has told me on many occasions to think about how lucky I am to live the way I do. In other countries, life is hard. In Africa, children starve to death as a result of famine and poverty. People my age in some countries are working more than my parents do. Katniss‟s disgust for the extravagant Capitol is similar to the disgust I felt for myself when I listened to an account of one man‟s visit to factories in China. How Despicable We Must Seem
