For class today, we created a fishbowl conversation to discuss the divisions, factions, and alliances of The Hunger Games (film and novel). The discussion was largely based on discussion questions posted on Twitter, as well the elements you and your classmates chose to follow. The concept of “us versus them” and fear of The Other are important elements of dystopian fiction that will continue to feature in the books and films we look at this semester. The tweets from this discussion should help you to follow along with what we talked about if you were absent.
After this discussion, we spent a bit of time talking about using Twitter as a research tool; how to search for accounts, how to mine follow lists for additional accounts of interest, and how to create lists. As part of your homework, you will need to search Twitter and find at least 3 accounts that you feel are relevant to follow for this course and bring them to class with you for #followFriday
