Block 4: Today in class we discussed Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games. We looked at her biographical sketch on her website and then you saw two short video clips of an interview with her. She explained in the videos where she got her inspiration for writing the book. Afterward, you wrote a summary of what you had learned about her from the notes you took during the discussion and video clips. This should have been turned in today. Then you started working on the definitions for the first set of vocabulary words from the novel.
HW 4: None, unless you need to finish your summary
