Pre-Chapter Discussion Questions
- Do you enjoy the same kinds of music that your parents like? Siblings?
- Which likes and dislikes make you unique from those in your family?
- 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
