The Hunger Games-another perspective

Hello All,

In my quest to better understand the hunger games as a tool for learning in the classroom, I have found this article written by a student at another university:

http://digitalcommons.uri.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1310&context=srhonorsprog&sei-redir=1&referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Furl%3Fsa%3Dt%26rct%3Dj%26q%3Dliterary%2520criticism%2520of%2520hunger%2520games%26source%3Dweb%26cd%3D1%26ved%3D0CDAQFjAA%26url%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fdigitalcommons.uri.edu%252Fcgi%252Fviewcontent.cgi%253Farticle%253D1310%2526context%253Dsrhonorsprog%26ei%3DVJ-pUOShO6vh0wG_yICgDQ%26usg%3DAFQjCNHfffVw8aicP2Vul5K0ROcKdU-LFQ#search=%22literary%20criticism%20hunger%20games%22

This persepctive compares themes found in the hunger games to classical themes found in other classical, well know books that are typically used in classrooms. This further leads me to thinking that our classmate Kelsey had the right idea, by using the hunger games alongside another text to highlight certain themes and ideas that could relate to real world historical events. This could both engage the student, while teaching history in a new and innovative way. Please let me know what you all think!
