If you are a teacher looking for materials for this novel, I have posted my unit on the TeachersPayTeachers website:
It is one of the highest-rated products on the site & contains printables, teacher's answer key, sample maps of Panem, symbolism & theme discussion, chapter summaries, chapter check quizzes, tests over chapter 1, part 1, part 2, and final exam, powerpoint review games, vocabulary list and definitions, vocab final test, character graphic organizer, and so much more.
On this site I also have free downloads of some of the lessons. You can find all my products here:
This book is EXCELLENT to teach to pretty much any grade from 5th on up. I've taught it to freshmen & sophomores & they loved it. I've lent it out to adults, to my 5th grade son & his friends, and to upper classmen. Have not found anyone who didn't love it.
I also have a Catching Fire unit I taught with my freshmen & sophomores & will have Mockingjay materials as soon as the book is released Aug. 24th! :) Hope this helps those who are looking for teaching materials--they are very hard to find.

Tracee's unit is by far the best ten bucks I've ever spent. It would have taken me months to come up with all that material and I still don't think I would have even thought of a lot of it. I've spent a heckuva lot more on publisher's guides and lessons and they don't even come close. I was fortunate enough to come across hers in a google search. If you need materials, no need to reinvent the wheel: she's already done it all for you. I HIGHLY recommend.
Perhaps you should submit this material to enotes through the lesson plan portion of the website. We're all in this together, and I have no doubt that the publishers of enotes would be very interested in a high quality unit on this well written and popular series. Please consider that, and keep us posted if you make it available to enotes. Thanks.
I posted three lessons in the document exchange & will post more when I get the chance.
I couldn't figure out how to list more than one grade level for the lesson. I put grade 8, but I actually used it with my general freshmen and sophomore groups.
