Chapter Thirteen - Writing Activity

Harry sits for a full week of detentions with Professor Umbridge, during which time she uses a rather unconventional punishment method when Harry writes his lines. Write an essay explaining how you feel about Professor Umbridge's punishment. Do you think there is something else Harry could have done to learn his lesson? Do you think he deserved to be punished at all? What kind of compromise do you think Umbridge could have made for Harry's Quidditch practice? Give details and support for your answers.
