Anyone have good ideas for undergrad class discussion exercises?

I'm the teaching assistant for a class, and I'll be leading a reading review session (30 mins) for a class of 80 or so undergrads. I'll be covering a few chapters from a non-academic mass market biography of Steve Jobs (the Isaacson one - there is virtually no discussion of theory in the book, but there is some basic history. Mostly, it's Steve Jobs anecdotes and interview quotes though ). I don't intend to regurgitate or summarize information from the book in class presentation format. .And ideally there needs to be some element of evaluating the students on their level of participation in these weekly sessions (this is not meant to be strict).
Does anyone have some good, even fun, class discussion exercises they can suggest for these sessions? ( I can't break them out into groups)
