Mockingjay Project: The Mission Explained


Good day, Students!  Your mission should you decide to accept it (which of course, you will!) is to find your own voice through narrative writing.  The mockingjay, a new species that emerged from the mating of the jabberjay and the mockingbird in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, found a new voice. It could recreate songs, and with enough patience from the coach, the mockingjay could sing not only a few notes but also an entire song.

Likewise, we are going to be “singing” to fellow writers, offering them suggestions to improve their writing.  With each other’s ideas, we will be writing posts that will use a variety of sensory details.   We will use the Hunger Games as a model text and as a  backdrop for our posts. 

Ladies and gentlemen, let the fun begin!
