The chapter titles give an overview of the events.

Pupils could
choose which titles logically might fill the gaps in the list
choose which words fill the gaps in the full list

Pupils could use the full list
to extract meaning and suggest what happens in the chapters
to match the titles in English from an English version
( e.g. )

or a summary version of the content of the chapters ( e.g. the summary here : )
to translate a certain number of the titles into English of a similar style (perhaps based on an example)

Use the chapter list as a way into choosing a section of a chapter from the novel to look at briefly
