Chapter Fifteen - Mediation/Role Playing Activity

Ron and Hermione continue to be very angry with each other in this chapter, and Harry finds himself torn between his two friends. Harry chooses to just split his time between the two, rather than try to help end their disagreement. For this activity, in groups of three, take turns acting as Harry, Hermione, and Ron. As Harry, try to get Ron and Hermione to talk about their differences and vocalize what it is that has been bothering them. (See if you can all reach an agreement on things such as Ron’s jealously about not being invited to Slughorn’s, and Hermione’s jealousy of Violet, etc.)
