Hi everyone,

One of my classes has just finished watching "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets". I have been surfing the net looking for questions relating to the movie to discuss orally in class but have come up empty handed. Can anyone advise of any sites for some sort of discussion questions or topics. The class age is 12-13 years old with a fairly good command of the English language. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think you're probably going to have to come up with some discussion topics on your own--unless you can find some in some sort of reader's club guide to the book.

Here's some worksheets I've seen at another site though.

I agree with mokpochino... I taught movies to some Korean teachers a few years back and had to come up with my own questions. I basically had to watch the movie 4-5 times before class and then with each class once in 20 minute sections followed by questions and discussion for 40 minutes. 5 classes of teachers I basically went crazy and can never watch the wedding singer again.

Check out the scholastic(.com?) website about Happy Potter...there is a quiz about the books...I am not sure if the questions are broken down between the books themselves though...

It also depends on what you want to talk about - issues in the movie, themes, relationships between the characters, reality v fantasy, bullying, appearances, secrets, friendships, magic, how they would feel if they were harry/hermione/ron etc, monsters, boasting/lying, bravery, etc etc....

Thanks for all the replies especially Squaffy - that's a great site. I have been making my own topics but was running out of ideas. I watched the movie twice but couldn't be bothered to watch it again.
