The writers of this blog post suggest ideas and resources for teaching the popular book series, "The Hunger Games," in the classroom. Similar to the Harry Potter and Twilight books, the young-adult novels are seen by some educators as a potential tool for encouraging reluctant readers as well as engaging those who enjoy reading. Lesson ideas include comparing the novels' Katniss with other key female characters in literature, and comparing the trilogy with dystopian literature such as George Orwell's "1984."
