Postcards from Dahl allows students to enter the humorous, yet heart-warming, world and works of Roald Dahl. Here, students will be rooting for the heroine, a young genius, against her school’s headmistress and ruthless parents in the story Matilda. They will discover the hearts of a kind giant and a little girl in The BFG, and they will be delighted and intrigued as they tour Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
This unit uses high-level thinking skills to challenge high-ability learners and also allows for differentiation so that all students in the class may participate. The activities included in Postcards from Dahl use Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognitive Development, Williams’ Taxonomy of Creative Thought, Bob Eberle’s SCAMPER, Creative Problem Solving, research skills, cross-curricular activities, and synectics.
