II. The following materials are intended for the group leader, in order to prepare the meeting.

The group leader will invite the participants to present the chosen text in turn, to read it or just to make a summary if it is too long and to present it following the steps recommended in the table.

The leader will record the divisions chosen by the members of the group and will order them in ascending order, mentioning also the titles they received from the participants.

The next step is the one in which the group leader creates, based on the presented divisions, a new text, excluding the divisions that were not chosen. The leader will then present to the group the result, or how the text was rearranged.

At the end, the group leader will invite each participant to present the drawings he has chosen from the diagram and to explain why. He will write down the choice of each participant for both required situations and will make a general presentation at the end.
