The Hunger Games.

Pretend you are writing a blog about The Hunger Games. (Don’t worry if you haven’t read a blog before. This just means you are writing for a general public. So, in this case, imagine you are writing to someone who hasn’t seen any of the movies or read the books.) Paint a mental picture of Katniss and Peeta. In other words, tell this general reader who Katniss and Peeta are. In order to accomplish these descriptions, use their virtues. What this means is that you should use the resources in this unit about virtue ethics and apply some of these virtues to your character descriptions of Katniss and Peeta. (Notice how this exercise requires you to use the beginning learning level of remembering (what are the virtues?) and understanding them (by being able to put them into your own words) and then applying them to specific characters).Here are a couple of questions that might get you started: Why do they say/act in the ways they do? What influences them or motivates them?
