The leader of the discussion has two main tasks: 
1. Lead the discussion and make everyone get the same space when it comes to talking. Make sure that everyone reports their task, find out whether anyone has any questions to ask about the text (i.e. if he/she has reacted to something, if the person doesn’t understand or finds anything less good) and ask if anyone has anything they want to comment on or add to the discussion. 

2. Make a short summary of the chapter/s that you have read. Choose two scenes from the text and ask questions to each scene for the group to answer and discuss. 

The Word Finder 
Look up and make a list of words that you find different, difficult, important or useful. (At least 20 words) Look them up in a dictionary and write an explanation in English for each word. Use Quizlet to create your word list. Help the group with the hard words. Share the quizlet with your friends. 


The Character ExaminerObserve at least two characters in the chapter. Tell your group about them. Add a quote that supports your experience of him or her. What do you like/dislike about the characters? Describe him/her. 

Talk about: 
Dorf is the new kid in school, and he’s having trouble making friends and fitting in. He misses the town he used to live in. It was much smaller and he knew more people. Being the new kid at school can be very difficult. Š As a group, brainstorm ways to help new students feel welcome in your school or classroom. Write a mindmap to help you.
