Prim might begin to repeat my words and then where would we be? In the woods waits the only person with whom I can be myself. What series of events led me to be standing in the ruins of my city? This is hard I am seventeen years old. My home is District I was in the Hunger. Games.
Throughout the day their movements are dictated by a rigid timetable, with a bell ringing to signal when it is time to change locations. He distinguishes between two modes of power: It also fixes them in hierarchical relationships, and by making them visible to one another, it renders them subject to constant scrutiny and evaluation. I appreciate that what I am proposing is likley to make some educators uncomfortable, especially in the current education reform era, which emphasizes standardization and homogeneity. Scan this: Fendler, L. According to the article, several updates made to the building enhanced student and teacher access to digital technologies.
Although it does not reside at the geographical center of Panem, the Capitol nevertheless engages in a range of surveillance practices that allow it to fix the districts in its gaze and enforce compliance with state authorized modes of conduct.
Katniss also cites the existence of paid informants who work for the Capitol p. Most important, the Capitol positions surveillance cameras throughout the districts, the result of which affords the state a window onto the lives of those it governs. Yet this is not always the case. As Katniss recounts, the jabberjay was a genetically engineered bird that scientists working for the Capitol created for surveillance purposes Collins, , pp. Thwarted, the Capitol abandoned the jabberjay project, assuming the birds would go extinct in the wild.
Before that could happen, however, the all-male jabberjays mated with mockingbirds, creating a new breed of bird known as the mockingjay Collins, , pp.
Importantly, the Capitol repeats these same missteps in its dealing with Katniss. As it had the jabberjay, the Capitol repeatedly overestimates its ability to control and manipulate Katniss. In her quest to survive the Hunger Games and return home to District 12, she proves a clever adversary. Throughout the series she uses a variety of tactics to subvert the disciplinary mechanisms the Capitol imposes on her.
Her acts of resistance are seldom spectacular. Instead, Katniss works quietly within the power system the Capitol erects to manipulate it and turn it to her advantage. It is no coincidence that she, like the jabberjay, experiences a metamorphosis over the course of the series that results in her transforming into the Mockingjay, a symbol of the Rebellion.
One of them, Scott Westerfeld, half-jokingly suggested that dystopian literature is perfectly suited for adolescents because high school is itself a dystopia. In a high school, a large number of students are divided into smaller, more manageable groups and partitioned into separate classrooms. Throughout the day their movements are dictated by a rigid timetable, with a bell ringing to signal when it is time to change locations. In the current education reform era, students are subject to countless assessments, the results of which are used to sort and rank them.
At a time when school violence is commonplace, surveillance tools have infiltrated schools in the name of maintaining safety. In some neighborhoods students enter school and pass through metal detectors under the watchful gaze of security guards. Still, it is possible to appreciate the host of tactics that adolescents use to navigate and subvert the disciplinary mechanisms that schools impose on them.
In Providence, Rhode Island, a group of students dressed as zombies and marched in front of the state capitol to protest a requirement that tied their ability to graduate from high school to their earning a minimum score on a state assessment Zezima, By making themselves visible in this way, these students directed attention back on the politicians whose policies they opposed.
Drawing on findings from a research study she conducted in a public school in New York City, Weiss described a series of creative tactics students used to circumvent the surveillance mechanisms that school leaders imposed on them. These tactics included their befriending security guards entrusted with surveilling them, finding alternative routes through the building to avoid the gaze of guards, and staging a walkout that functioned to disrupt the school day and call unwanted attention to school leaders.
I appreciate that what I am proposing is likley to make some educators uncomfortable, especially in the current education reform era, which emphasizes standardization and homogeneity. Furthermore, asking students to talk or write about occasions in their life when they, like Katniss, used tactics to resist practices that struck them as problematic or oppressive encourages them to see themselves as powerful agents capable of working for change.
Finally, encouraging students to interrogate the disciplinary mechanisms they encounter across different contexts can heighten their awareness of them and empower them by helping them to understand that any power the gaze wields over them is contingent on their acknowledging its authority.
