Save the last word for me! pg. 115

This is a group activity. Each student copies a passage that he or she finds thought-provoking and writes it in large letters on a sheet of paper. Taking turns, each student silently holds up his or her passage so the other group members can read it and in turn each group member responds to the passage. The group members will try to answer why the passage was chosen or how important it is to a chapter. Once each member answers, the person who chose the passage will get the "last word" and add his or her own thoughts.
