Discussion Questions and Activities - Chapters 15 and 16

Chapter 15

My Own Place: Playing my own music was part of my newfound freedom. I had a bicycle and could go places.

Pre-Chapter Discussion Questions

  1. Do you enjoy the same kinds of music that your parents like? Siblings?
  2. Which likes and dislikes make you unique from those in your family?
  3. Do you have a special place you like to go to be alone? Describe that place.

Follow-Up Activity —          

Teach the students how to sit quietly in a meditation posture, with eyes closed. Play some relaxing, classical music. Afterward, explain that they can be responsible for their own relaxation. Discuss quiet, secret places of retreat. Next have each student illustrate or photograph a secret place where he/she likes to go to be alone. For those who do not have a secret place, encourage them to choose one. Share the pictures and/or photographs

Chapter 16

Working for Mr. Ching: When I was a little boy and wished upon the Orphan Star, my fate appeared as fixed as that one light hanging on the horizon. But tonight, my fortune is improving as rapidly as the shooting stars are streaking across the sky.

Pre-Chapter Discussion Questions

  1. Have you ever felt hopeless? When? What happened to make you feel that way?
  2. What is it that gives you courage when you feel helpless?
  3. How did Chi Fa deal with unfortunate circumstances? Despair?
  4. What kinds of things did the hero use to comfort himself?
