EDA 5198 - Using the Hunger Games to Teach Science Fiction

(2) This course will cover the impact of genre on fiction, ultimately focusing on the traits and intricacies that define modern science fiction as a major genre. It will examine common science fiction tropes-dystopian settings, a modern-day hero’s journey, and the anti-hero. Then, using Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games as a model, it will serve as a guide for designing an instructional unit based on science fiction, including reading, writing, listening and speaking, and language skills.
