I enjoyed having the guess speakers come in and share their knowledge in their field of study and related it to The Hunger Games. Thanks to Dr. Raley I have a better understanding of the importance of gender roles in every day life. For example I now understand why producers make commercials the way that they do. I can tell by watching the commercial now and see what audience they are trying to attract. Another guess speaker I enjoyed listening to was Mr. Sztajer, the Holocaust Survivor. Being able to hear his story on how he was able to survive the Holocaust helped me to understand more how hard it was for Katniss to survive not only the hunger games but also living in District 12 before she was part of the seventy-fourth games.
