Hunger Games 2 (Catching Fire) Student Work Booklet

Hunger Games 2 (Catching Fire) Student Work Booklet

This booklet has been designed as part of a unit of work on Catching Fire (the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy). It includes activities about characters, the setting and language features which students are to complete as they read the novel. There are also questions about the events/themes/character's perspectives et cetera for each chapter. This is all in preparation for a creative writing assessment where students take what they have learned to create two or three diary entries which provide insight into a minor character from the novel. In doing so they must reveal the personality of their character through what they see, think, feel, hope for and fear. Students were assessed on how purposefully they shaped their representations of people, places, events and concepts in the novel.

Whole school selection of resources providing a simple overview of social media

Whole school selection of resources providing a simple overview of social media

These resources can be used as quick and simple activities for more able or older students or can be used as part of a complete ESOL session on the topic of social media. (I found my adult ESOL classes took 2 x 2.50 hour sessions to complete the activities along with discussions.)There is a starter activity (Social Media Countdown where the students make as many words as possible from the title letters), which can be followed by the crossword (with or without a word bank for differentiation). The crossword provides the word bank for the gap-fill 'Social Media apps' unit of work which is an overview of various sites. The SM Vocabulary Word-search includes a section to put the verbs and nouns into boxes. The LinkedIn sheet prompts dictionary work and discussion. Finally, there are some colourful clip art pages to read and discuss.
