In which badguys and I attempted to make a map of Panem. | Hunger Games in the Library (and other classrooms) | Scoop.it
Why? So, while this map is amazing: We were like, but Panem is supposed to be North America, not just the United States.
WhenLibrariansAttack's insight:

Not just a graphically cool fan-sourced map of Panem, but a description of the research that went into its construction.

'Hunger Games' and the Most Physically Demanding Female Roles

'Hunger Games' and the Most Physically Demanding Female Roles | Hunger Games in the Library (and other classrooms) | Scoop.it
For this week’s The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence not only transformed herself mentally to play a teenaged survivalist but also physically, in order to accurately portray the masterful hunter and archer that Katniss Everdeen has become.
WhenLibrariansAttack's insight:

From Buffy to Lara to Katniss to Tris... female role models are getting past the "pert & feisty" and into the stong & competent. I think that's a good thing. Question for YA librarians: are boys enjoying the many new books with strong female protagonists?

 

After all, we girls (of a certain age) grew up reading and identifying with strong male protagonists because "boys wouldn't read a book about a girl", so that's all that was on offer. I'm hoping that tide has turned...

Newsteaser: Research has shown that hunger affects our perception of risk. Scientists researched the hungry brain's mechanisms using the Drosophila fly.
WhenLibrariansAttack's insight:

When you're hungry, you take more risks to get food - seems obvious, and supports the entire premise of the "Hunger Games" series.

This is not the first time Washington has tried to use its anti-hunger programs to dictate criminal justice policy to the states.

Current Events and U.S. Gov. classes: District 12 was being punished for crimes committed in the past. Let's just try that in our own country. Because it worked SO well for Panem.

Rumors of a new Hunger Games series have surfaced, and DreamWorks is buying into the idea.
WhenLibrariansAttack's insight:

They're calling an unwritten new book trilogy similar to the "Hunger Games", but the similarities seem pretty broad, and could apply to the entire sub-genre. Typical movie producer-speak.
