just add a string variable declaration near the other member variables in the dummy item class (make sure you put it in dummy item and not dummy content, dummy item is towards the bottom

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

public class DummyContent {

    public static List<DummyItem> ITEMS = new ArrayList<DummyItem>();
    public static Map<String, DummyItem> ITEM_MAP = new HashMap<String, DummyItem>();

    static {
        // Add 3 sample items.
        addItem(new DummyItem("1", "The Avengers"));
        addItem(new DummyItem("2", "The Hobbit"));
        addItem(new DummyItem("3", "Ball of Fire"));

    private static void addItem(DummyItem item) {
        ITEM_MAP.put(item.id, item);

     * A dummy item representing a piece of content.
    public static class DummyItem {

        //this is where you add the member variable
        public static String director;
        public String id;
        public String content;

        public DummyItem(String id, String content) {
            this.id = id;
            this.content = content;
