My students are all individuals; no two are alike. Within them lie many differences. Some are louder, some quieter. Some have a tendency to wander way outside of the box while others linger closer to it. They know no race, level of intelligence, or economic status.
Despite their differences, they are all aware that they have one thing in common: they all belong to an amazing classroom community that thrives each minute of each day.
Together, as a class, they break down barriers to become better people and students.
All four years of my teaching career have had one thing in common: Roald Dahl. It started with my love for Matilda, but it has slowly grown into much more than just one novel. This past year, we read three Dahl novels as a class. I suppose the love for his literature spread because my students took it upon themselves to read his masterpieces independently, as well.
This year, I want my students to learn more about the man who is behind all of these magical stories.
What better way to connect fiction and non-fiction than through a humorous autobiography by one of the world's finest authors?
