"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends." ~ Albus Dumbledore-- FABULOUS MONTRA for Middle Schoolers!!
and ANYWAY I was thinking about a reading piece I used to do with my classes when I was the building reading teacher. This was back when HP had just gotten big. A chapter in the first book describes HP's first Hogwarts experience, how big the school is and how scared Harry was. I used to read that with my students and then brainstorm how their first days were similar to Harry's. They would do a poetry writing piece about this called Walking into Ray (which is the name of my school) where they would then describe how they felt about our school using their 5 senses.
What I'm wondering is, how relevant would the Harry Potter reference still be? It has been awhile since the books and movies have come out, and although it is still popular, I'm unsure if it would have the same affect. Any thoughts on the topic?
