  8. ‘The Hunger Games’ Reading Ch1 of the NovelLearning Intentions • I will read and enjoy the first chapter of ‘The Hunger Games’. • I will be able to show my understanding of the text by answering questions on characters and vocabulary. • I will be able to pick out information from the text. • I will be able to identify and comment on techniques used by the author to create tension. • I will be able to write a short essay using Point - Evidence - Comment structures which analyses the use of tension in the chapter. • I will be able to apply my knowledge to write an alternative ending from another character’s point of view.

  9. Sixteen-year-old KatnissEverdeen regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. But Katniss has been close to death before - and survival, for her, is second nature. The Hunger Games is a searing novel set in a future with unsettling parallels to our present. Welcome to the deadliest reality TV show ever...

  10. Why should you read ‘The Hunger Games’? • ‘A violent, jarring, speed-rap of a novel that generates nearly constant suspense. ..I couldn’t stop reading.’ – Stephen King • ‘I was so obsessed with this book…The Hunger Games is amazing.’ – Stephenie Meyer • ‘Brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced.’ – John Green (The New York Times Book Review)

  11. ‘The Hunger Games’ Chapter 1 We are going to read / listen to the first chapter of the novel, then complete some activities based on it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uMIJ3dA5IA

  12. Warm up: Complete the tasks on vocabulary and characters on the sheet you have been given.

  13. In Pairs Draw a table like the one below and fill it in with as many different points as you can. 1) What do we learn about life in ‘the Seam’ in District 12 from this chapter? The first one has been done for you. ‘Our part of District 12, nicknamed the Seam, is usually crawling with coal miners heading out to the morning shift at this hour’ (p4) There are coal mines in the Seam - the people there have to work hard to survive.

  14. In Pairs -discuss and both write your answers 2) What do we learn about Katniss and her family? Give evidence. 3) What clues are we given that ‘the reaping’ is something bad? Find and quote as many as you can. For example: • Katniss thinks Prim ‘must have had bad dreams’ because ‘This is the day of the reaping’. 4) What effect do these clues have?

  15. In Pairs -discuss and both write your answers 5) What are ‘the reaping’ and ‘The Hunger Games’ and why do they take place, according to the story read out by the Mayor? 6) Why does Katniss say they take place, and why does she say it is ‘humiliating’?

  16. Feedback Let’s hear your ideas!

  17. Now you are going to complete some tasks on suspense and tension. • You are going to work in groups of 4. • Each group is going to be given 5 extracts from the description of the Reaping (p19 to the end of the chapter). • Discuss how the extracts you have been given help to build tensionand write your ideas on the sheet.

  18. Feedback Let’s hear your ideas!

  19. Suspense and Tension Definition of ‘reap’ - Verb a. Cut or gather (a crop or harvest). b. Harvest the crop from (a piece of land) • What does the word ‘reaping’ suggest? How effective is this choice? • What part of Chapter 1 do you find most effective? • How does the threat of the Reaping run through the whole chapter? 4. What do you think builds most tension in the chapter?

  20. Writing your essay on Tension in Chapter 1 • Introduce the text, author and what you are going to write about. • Write one paragraph analysing how the threat of the Reaping runs through the whole chapter. • Write four paragraphs analysing how she builds tension during the description of the Reaping itself. • Concludeby summing up how well you think the chapter works to build up tension and draw the reader into the book. • Use the Point – Evidence – Comment structure – we’ll look at this in more detail in a minute. Question: How does Suzanne Collins build tension in Chapter 1 of The Hunger Games?

  21. Writing your essay on Tension in Chapter 1 You need to start with a short introduction: Introduce the text, author and what you are going to write about. For example: Suzanne Collins uses a variety of techniques to create tension in chapter one of ‘The Hunger Games’.

  22. One paragraph about how the threat of the Reaping runs through the whole chapter: TOPIC SENTENCE - introduces the topic of the paragraph POINT – make a point EVIDENCE – back it up with evidence COMMENT – comment on what this reveals The threat of the Reaping runs through the whole chapter, building tension and making us wonder about… For example, the narrator and central character, Katniss, tells us that her sister had probably had a bad dream and climbed in with her mother: “Of course, she did. This is the day of the reaping.” This tells us right from the start that the reaping is a bad thing and that it is enough to give people nightmares. This makes it seem scary and makes us wonder what it is.

  23. The threat of the Reaping runs through the whole chapter, building tension and making us wonder about… For example, the narrator and central character, Katniss, tells us that her sister had probably had a bad dream and climbed in with her mother: “Of course, she did. This is the day of the reaping.” This tells us right from the start that the reaping is a bad thing and that it is enough to give people nightmares. This makes it seem scary and makes us wonder what it is. Now it’s your turn to complete this paragraph using TWO more point - evidence - comment structures.

  24. Now you are going to write four paragraphs about how Collins builds tension during the description of the Reaping itself. Remember: • use topic sentences to start your paragraphs; • make points; • back them up with evidence; • comment on their effect.

  25. Conclude your essay by summing up how well you think the chapter works to build up tension and draw the reader into the book. Check your essay carefully when you have finished. Extension: Write an alternative ending to chapter 1 using the sheet from the teacher.

How did you do? • Did you write an introduction which referred to the title, author and task? • Did you start your paragraphs with topic sentences? • Did you use the point – evidence – comment structure? • Did you answer the question – how does the author build tension? • Did you sum up how well you think the author builds tension in the conclusion? Make any changes you need to
