I really enjoyed the questions that this book asked to help understand the Hunger Games book. My teens might have been getting off topic and these questions would bring them right back. By taking a chapter I was easily able to keep the conversation lively at dinner time. a great book for your child to discover the answers for themselves, and with discussing it with them you can lead without dictating in the right direction.
I downloaded The Hunger Games discussion guide for my 16 year old daughter as she enjoyed the trilogy. She was kind of disappointed in that this is just a list of twenty or so questions on each of the three books. Then the remaining 30% of the book is suggestions for other books to read. Her and her sister skimmed it and really didn't see the sense in it.
I got as a Hunger Games fan not a teacher. I think it was free. I suppose it would be good for leading an extended discussion on the books. As an adult reader it didn't add appreciably to my understanding of the books. But I think it's free.
