Word Wizard: Your job is to locate a few special sections of the
text that you think your group would like to read aloud. The idea is to
help people remember some interesting, powerful, funny, puzzling, or important
sections of the text. You decide which passages or paragraphs are worth
hearing, and then jot plans for how they should be shared. You can read
the passages aloud yourself, or ask someone else to read them, then discuss
them as a group.
