4. Student-Directed Discussion (5 min): Should the Capitol be angry with Katniss?
  • we actively listen to our teammates (use silent signals, try to understand, no side conversations)
  • we build on each other's comments (not just state our own opinions)
  • we monitor our own air time (step up, step back)
  • we direct the discussion, without the teacher (no raising hands, only one at a time)
  • we help teammates enter the conversation (I'd love to hear from ____)

5. Analyzing Symbolism (35 min): Complete your classwork here. (Do your best work!)
  • Symbolism is representing complex ideas with symbols (could be words or images).
