Sounds like a cool book. Which is the weirdest fear in the book? Which fears do you share with the characters? If you had to go to the school, what would it be for? How do you think you could overcome it?
Tell me about the teachers at the school. Have they overcome their own fears? Is that how they become teachers?
Your answers are not giving much detail. For instance, the first question... you really never said how the death affected her. I feel that it made Katniss fight on and realize she was fighting for people as well as just against the capital. You have to think things through before you write and then add details.
Tell me about the ending and answer the last few questions from before. But this time, really tell me about it. Push yourself! You can do it.
I liked your ideas, but I want to see some more details in here. You answer the questions in very short sentences and then put them all in the same paragraph. It's difficult to understand that way. Answer questions that are alike in the same paragraph- kind of how I grouped them as questions.
Why do you think Katniss was so affected by Rue's death?
Could Kat (and Peeta) survive the game without Haymitch? Why are the sponsors so important to the success of the games? Why do they help the competitors?
What did you think of the end? Did Katniss and Peeta cheat? Why or why not?
Why do you think the Capital's government and President Snow are angry about the outcome of the games?
That sounds like good writing when you can picture it in your head. This book is action packed so I can understand why you like it so much. Keep reading!
Have you seen why Haymitch has been so important to Katniss's survival? Explain why. Who do you think has the better skills to survive the games- Kat or Peeta. Why? How do you think Gale would have done?
Do you think Katniss made the right decision in taking Prim's place? Why do you think she did this?
Some of the tributes ally themselves and others try to go it alone. Which is the better strategy in your opinion? Explain your thinking.
May the games be ever on your side!
What made that part so exciting to you?
I found it interesting that you would want to be from the Capital. Do you think being the bad guy would be worth it? Do you think people who live in the Capital see themselves as bad? Why or why not? I guess you don't see them as bad either. Explain why you think the Hunger Games are a good thing for the society in the book.
What do you think the people in the districts should do about their situation? Right now, they do nothing and have to do whatever the Capital tells them to do. Is that fair?
What's happening in the book?
So what has been the most exciting part so far? What do you think the author could eliminate from the book?
If you could ask the author three questions, what would they be?
Would you rather be from the Capital or one of the districts? And which one, if so? Explain.
Hi there Sophia,
Why do people from the Capitol think that Katniss and Peeta have no chance in the Hunger Games? How is Haymitch supposed to help them? In your opinion, is Haymitch doing a good job? Why or why not?
Do you think Peeta's love for Katniss will help or hurt their ability to survive? Explain.
Why are some of the participants not scared at all? How do you think you would feel if you were picked?
Good luck. And may the games be with you.
What have you enjoyed about the Hunger Games the most? Why do you think the Capitol throws the Hunger Games every year? What does it represent and what are they showing the people?
Describe Katniss. Why is she is admired as a character, meaning why do so many people think of her as such a great literary heroine? How would you describe Gale and Peeta? How do they feel about Katniss?
What questions do you have so far? I always wondered how the Capitol came to power.
Talk to you soon,
OK- so how did the dog get Molly to rob a bank? Sounds strange. And I thought Molly was the good guy! Why is she robbing banks? That sounds like something Nockman would do.
What other things have happened in the book? I'm a little confused about things, but I think that's the point of the book. It's hard to figure out what happened that was real and what happened when someone was hypnotized. Agree or disagree?
Have you enjoyed the book so far?
It's been awhile since we talked. Let's catch up!
What happened to Molly? Was she hypnotized or not? I think the book is pretty entertaining and unique because it keeps you on edge. What is real and what isn't? It must be confusing in places.
What happens next with Nockman? All villains seem to have one fatal flaw. What is Nockman's weakness? What should Molly do to exploit it?
Is the whole hypnosis think real? Do you believe in it? Tell me what you know.
Post grade 90 - I think you could have gone into a bit more detail and maybe offered some of your own opinions or questions. But, overall I think you did a good job and I truly believe that you are enjoying this book and seeing some of the deeper meanings and themes in it.
I'm glad you're having a good time. I'm glad you all got to be part of our chat with Arizona Smith for a while too.
What has happened in the book? It sounds like Molly could go a long time getting whatever she wanted. But that would be a boring book! What happens? Does somebody NOT get hypnotized? Does she lose her power?
It sounds like there might be a lesson in this story as well. What do you think the book could teach somebody based on what you've read so far?
I hope you're having fun on the trip! It sounds exciting so far.
So what has Molly gotten by hypnotizing people? Who has she hypnotized? She sounds like a bad person! True? Maybe you could give me some more details about her.
Is Dr. Logan a part of the story?
What's been happening in the story?
