Reading Course Term 1: The Hunger Games (Book 1)

The Hunger Games is a brilliant novel to study; it’s exciting and engaging to read, but also rich in symbolism and links to the real world. We explore dominant themes in the novel such as wealth inequality, appearance and conflict, also learning how authors can use fictional stories to comment on significant events in real life.

Students will be expected to read the majority of the novel outside of tutorials and be ready to discuss and write about the reading they have done. Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials.

  • Tutorials – The tutorials are a blend of the tutor reading aloud, discussions about the novel and written work
  • Reading requirements – Students do not need to read the novel before the lessons. However, students will need to do some reading outside of tutorials during the term. Purchasing the novel is recommended. You can find copies in our bookshop
  • Feedback and support – Students will receive live feedback on written work during tutorials using Google Classrooms. It is useful to have a Google account that they can use for this purpose
  • Homework – Optional homework opportunities provided.
