Copyright 2003

Students learn about Roald Dahl's technique for exaggerating tiny peculiarities of people to make them larger, uglier, better and more interesting than in real life. Students will learn why extreme characters create vivid impressions and how metaphors and similes bring liveliness to the writing. Includes a study guide.

Key Benefits:
  • Standards-aligned with national and state language arts & literature curricula, where reading is universally taught with respected children's literature, i.e. National Council of Teachers of English Standard #2: "Students read a wide range of literature."
  • Standards-aligned because it also teaches literary reading strategies such as character development, figures of speech such as metaphors, similes, hyperbole (exaggeration), etc, i.e. NCTE Standard #3: "Students apply a wide range of strategies to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and appreciate texts."
  • Standards-aligned in that Dahl is considered one of the important children's authors for children to read, i.e. his James and the Giant Peach is listed as Core (required) reading for grades 4-6 on the California "Recommended Readings in Literature" List, and his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox listed as Extended reading for grades 3-5
