Hmmm...was Cinna the best teacher for Katniss?

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, so that has me thinking...
Who were the best teachers for Katniss in The Hunger Games trilogy?

Cinna? Haymitch? Effie? Peeta? Gale? Finnick? Boggs? Johanna? Plutarch? Her mother? Madge? Maybe even Primrose? Or perhaps President Snow in his sick, twisted way?

This might be a good writing prompt for your students: which characters seemed to teach Katniss the most--about herself, about the Games, or just about life?

Students can also write which "lessons" Katniss learned that were most valuable.
Pin It

This might be an interesting small-group discussion activity. I could see students arguing for or against certain characters as being the best or most effective "teachers." To prep them, ask them what it takes to be a good teacher? Is it more important that you learn despite unorthodox delivery (as in Haymitch's mentoring techniques), or is delivery of instruction just as important (such as Cinna's gentle way of teaching Katniss)?

So what do YOU think? Which character was the best teacher for Katniss?
