Chapter Twenty-Four - Reading Discussion Activity

Harry receives detentions for the remainder of the school year from Professor Snape in this chapter. The tension between Harry and Snape has increased throughout Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts, yet Dumbledore continues to trust Snape. With a group of 3-4 other students, discuss which side you think Snape is really on. Do you think he is a truly dark wizard? Do you think he might end up being loyal to Dumbledore, after all? Make your predictions together as a group.

If you have already finished the book at this point, discuss whether the book had ended as you had predicted.
