This time, students were at tables where different prompts were placed, and each table began our discussion, maybe with some wandering along the way to talk about other parts of the book. We started with our favorite parts of the story.
Favorite parts included Harry & Ron in the Forbidden Forest to find Eragog, classes with Professor Lockhart, and the time in the Chamber of Secrets.
Another prompt that generated a lot of conversation was this one:
Hands down, the favorite new creature was the basilisk, but Dobby and Fawkes were also favorites of many.
After a few more prompts, students then had the opportunity to share their favorite recommendations of late:
Below are the titles students would recommend; almost all of these books are in our library, and some were even checked out as students left Book Club to head to their next classes.
The next Book Club meeting will be in late January when we will talk about Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Hope to see you then!
