Class Experience

Students will learn about Roald Dahl (general focus) and some of his written work. 
Students will be given a chance to listen and comment on excerpts of Roald Dahl's work. 
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I understand that Roald Dahl made controversial comments in his lifetime. For the purpose of this session, I wish to only focus on a  age appropriate overview just to give students some context into an author's life. We will focus more on his craft as a children's novel writer. I will directly state the purpose. I will state behavior norms before I present the general overview of his life. I will not open the floor for comments to minimize the chance that a student may bring up aspects that I did not intent to explain. If a comment should steer the lesson to an undesirable direction, I intend to quickly remind students of my expectations.
