The Hunger Games eNotes Response Journal
Excerpt From this Document
- Why does it upset Katniss when Peeta Mellark is chosen as the male tribute from District 12? Why do you think she hates “owing people”? How do you think her feelings on this subject will complicate her choices in the Hunger Games?
- Katniss is unsure about the motives behind Peeta’s friendly behavior. Do you think he is a genuinely good person, or do you think he is merely performing for the cameras in order to give himself an edge in the Hunger Games? Use evidence from the story to back up your answer.
- The Hunger Games are designed as a source of entertainment for the people of the Capitol. What parts of the experience seem like a game to you? As you read, do you ever forget that lives are at stake? Why or why not?
- Katniss thinks often of Prim, who will be forced to watch highlights from the Hunger Games during breaks at school. Why do you think the government makes the people from the districts watch the Games?
- How does Rue’s death change Katniss’s attitude toward the Capitol? What does Katniss do to protest the death? How do her actions show that Rue is “more than a piece in their Games”?
- Katniss and Peeta guess that Haymitch won his Hunger Games by outsmarting the other opponents. Do you think intelligence makes that big of a difference in the Games? Use evidence from the story to support your answer.

A second purpose of the eNotes Response Journal is to facilitate instruction in ways that work for you in the classroom. The organization of the Response Journal makes it easy to use, and the content and construction of the writing prompts are designed to develop students’ knowledge and academic skills.
