Seventh Grade is Digging Deep Using Allusion

In Ms. Murray and Mrs. Aube’s language arts classes, students have dedicated their attention to the study of allusion in The Hunger Games.  While Ms. Murray’s classes investigated a nonfiction text titled You Wouldn’t Want to Be a Roman Gladiator, they created a list of connections, or allusions, between the nonfiction text and the fictional world of The Hunger Games.  Students justified their allusions by paraphrasing the novel and citing page numbers in both texts.  In Mrs. Aube’s classes, a study of Greek mythology and the myth of “Icarus and Daedalus” led to a competition between classes to find the class with the deepest understanding of allusions to the myth in The Hunger Games novel.  Students created depth analysis charts to connect the relationship of Daedalus and Icarus to Katniss and Rue of the novel, and page numbers were used to justify their inferences.  The next phase of the allusion study moves students into providing a written response of their inferences using proper MLA citations for their evidence!
