This sort challenges students to determine which Harry Potter character is linked with which quote. Students can work individually or collaboratively in a small group to discuss the quotes, determine meaning, analyze the author's word choice and recall relevant details from the passage. This sort supports RL 5.1 and RL 5.3 of the Common Core State Standards.
My students loved this sort and would eagerly grab copies of the text to check their work. They participated in many great student-led discussions about the text, which is every teacher's dream!
