Mackay Dunn 5th Period Hunger Games Activity #1 Q: What information did you need to know before reading the novel? A: This novel is set in a futuristic time period but still in the continent of North America. There was a revolution against the Capitol, which the capitol won, that ended up in the creation of districts.

The capitol does all they can to control them and one of the primary methods is the hunger games. In the hunger games the capitol annually enters all the children’s names ages 12-18 into a lottery, where one girl and one boy will be randomly selected to compete.

Immigration has always been a part of globalization starting from the first barbarians that occupied the world in prehistoric times. Every year, hundreds of thousands of immigrants legal and illegal from around the world, come into the United States making a huge impact on the culture and the way of life of the American society. However, lately according to the documentary film “Border War: The Battle over Illegal Immigration” Produced by a nonprofit organization called “Citizens United,” illegal immigration has become a very persuasive problem to the American people. The film depicts the lives of people who have been affected by illegal immigration along the U.S. - Mexico border, such as the U.S. Border Patrol agent, Jose Maheda, saying that immediate action needs to be taken to establish an end to the issue.
