Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: Chapters 9-10

Mark True statements with a “T” and False statements with an “F.” Write your answers to the discussion points in the com boxes below.

1._____ Harry, Ron, and Mr. Weasley meet Lucius Malfoy in the Department of Mysteries after Harry’s Wizengamut trial. In their first meeting since the Voldemort re-birthing, Harry tells the Death Eater he is good at escaping.

2._____ Harry dumps a bag of galleons into the Fountain of Magical Brethren – and notices that the statues are anything but life-like (except for the house-elf).

3._____ Everyone is delighted that Harry “got off” except Sirius Black who seems a little moody after Harry’s return to Grimmauld Place. Harry wonders if he wasn’t hoping that he’d have someone to keep him company at Headquarters.

4._____ To everyone’s astonishment, Ron is made a Gryffindor Prefect. Harry has to wrestle with his conscience because he thinks that he is much more qualified for the position than Ron, but decides in the end to confront Dumbledore about it.

5._____ “Mad-Eye” Moody makes a point of showing Harry a photograph of the original Order of the Phoenix – with details of how everyone that suffered was killed or tortured. Mrs. Weasley’s trouble with a boggart is equally disturbing.

6._____ Harry, Hermione, and the Weasley children are accompanied by Sirius as Padfoot the dog to King’s Cross Station. Hermione thinks it is a good idea that he get out but Ron and Harry worry that he may be spotted.

7._____ Ron and Hermione go to the Prefect compartment on the Hogwarts Express but Harry gets a seat with Luna Lovegood, a friend of Ginny’s. Neville treats them all with a shower of perfumed smellsap from his Mimbulus Mimbletonia.

8._____ Luna’s father is the editor of an alternative newspaper called The Quibbler. Harry reads about how Sirius Black is really a rock-star named Stubby Boardman and that Cornelius Fudge hates goblins and cooks them in pies.

9._____ Malfoy has been chosen as a Slytherin House Prefect and has a great time rubbing Harry’s face in his not having been selected. He asks Harry how it feels to be bested by Weasley and tells Harry he’ll be dogging him all year.

10._____ Getting off the train, Harry is astonished to see the carriages are being pulled by “horse-things” with bat-like wings. Even more disturbing, only he and Luna seem to be able to see them.

Discussion Point: Harry’s fifth year starts off lousy, no? He is passed over for Prefect, he gets a stinksap bath on the train, Malfoy is laughing at him, and he seems to be seeing things only Luna can see. What does this stage setting suggest about the year to come?
