re:Work - Guide: Understand team effectiveness
Work groups are characterized by the least amount of interdependence. They are based on organizational or managerial hierarchy. Work groups may meet periodically to hear and share information.

Teams are highly interdependent - they plan work, solve problems, make decisions, and review progress in service of a specific project. Team members need one another to get work done.

Viennese Trainspotter — Sanctuary: Why Katniss Everdeen is a Woman of...
In other words, if Katniss is white, the metaphor that makes the trilogy meaningful social commentary and inspirational to the would-be revolutionaries of color in the world is lost. It’s just an appropriation of struggles. It is a re-writing of history that erases us, erases our struggles and our victories. I have to believe Collins didn’t mean this: so I have to believe, to love these books, that Katniss is a WOC.

EDITED 03/13/12 to add: I’ve added a “hunger games” tag to all posts about the Hunger Games, including links to other blogs. Please click for more perspectives on this issue!

the moving castle: A Question of Perspective
And here's the thing that teaching the book made crystal-clear to me: it is ESSENTIAL that Katniss narrates. It may even be essential that she narrates in the present tense. The only way we as readers can avoid complicity in the horrific spectacle of the Hunger Games is to be inside that Arena, to be looking at everything through Katniss's eyes. Otherwise, we are voyeurs - maybe reluctant, unwilling ones, but we are watching the spectacle, we are guided by the media's editing, we are caught up in the excitement and the dazzle and the suspense. If we're out in the Capitol, or even the Districts, we are not innocent bystanders. If we're in the Arena, locked inside the head of a tribute, then we are not reveling in the spectacle of the Games; we're aware of, alive with, the fear and horror and difficulties and pain of the Games. And that's the part that's important.

White Until Proven Black: Imagining Race in Hunger Games - The New Yorker
By mid-March, Adam’s screen grabs were regularly receiving five, ten, sometimes twenty “likes.” Other Tumblr users were reblogging Hunger Games Tweets and providing their own commentary alongside Adam’s. (In response to a tweet from a young woman named Kayla, who asked, “why is Rue black?!?! #WTH #hungergamesprobs,” Adam responded, “Melanin. Rue is black because of MELANIN.” “Oh my god, Kayla, you can’t just ask people why they’re black,” added a Tumblr user named beastieeyes22.) Last week, just as the film version of “The Hunger Games” was about to hit theatres, Adam’s Tumblr posts were receiving dozens, if not hundreds, of reblogs and responses

LOEX Keynote Presentation by Barbara Fister,Gustavus Adolphus College | The Oberlin Group
My next claim is about how much emphasis we librarians put on finding sources. Though we are all on board with active learning and constructivism, and we don’t fill our time with database demonstrations, we still (and I include myself in this “we”) focus a lot of our time with students on how to use library tools to find stuff, mainly because when we typically meet with students, they aren’t deeply into their research. We’re lucky if they’ve read the assignment and have some idea of a topic they might search for. Yet we know from Project Information Literacy and a number of other studies that students actually have little trouble with this part of the process. Framing questions, seeing patterns in the literature, weighing evidence, seeing the gaps – that’s what’s hard, yet those are the activities that will make all the difference in whether or not students begin to see themselves as people who can make knowledge, as makers, not just consumers of other people’s stuff.

Waiting for the motivation fairy [pdf]
So why is housekeeping, for example, so
much fun when you’re supposed to be working
on your dissertation or a paper? It’s a displace
-
ment activity, used to dispel the self-reproach
or discomfort that we feel for not doing some
-
thing else. Reading a novel or taking a nap
causes too much guilt. But have you ever, say,
reorganized your folders to make it easier to
find the files? It would speed up your writing,
after all. Or perhaps you’ve diligently labelled
all the cupboards in the lab to make it easier
to find things.
