Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Read the story and prepare to read it aloud or tell it dramatically.
  • Optional: Darken the room and read the story by flashlight, for heightened tension to illustrate the Sharps' treacherous, cloak-and-dagger mission.

Description of Activity

Gather the group to hear a story. Read aloud or tell the story.

After the story, invite participants to share their reflections and initial thoughts. Allow some discussion, and tell the group they may continue in more depth later, in Council Circle.
