Lesson 13: Compare and Contrast Text and Film Versions, Connect "The Hunger Games" and "The Giver"

Students will compare and contrast the text and film versions of the reaping scene in The Hunger Games by analyzing the effects of each medium. Students will also connect ideas across texts by analyzing how the reaping in The Hunger Games and the Ceremony of Twelves in The Giver limit personal choice and freedom.

A downloadable audio recording of The Giver is available here.
