The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

The Witches - Roald Dahl - Novel Study Presentation

This presentation (Powerpoint) covers a HUGE range of learning areas that are available in the novel The Witches by Roald Dahl. Starting with the history of witches and going through the book itself, author, publisher. We then delve into the characters that are in this story (of which there are plenty). Then we explore Settings, what they are and the different settings that are portrayed throughout the story. In every story, there are conventions that the author uses and this is no different in The Witches, There is Exposition, Rising action, climax and then Resolution. Each of these areas is explored in detail. Plot and Theme are also touched on. This presentation was used over the course of a term as students read through the novel, it was accompanied by worksheets that were generic but could change with the different content in the presentation. i.e. when looking at settings the questions were similar but a different setting was explored each lesson. You could take the bits you need or use it as a whole presentation. A fabulous resource when teaching this novel. P.s - There are some pictures with eyes and a man looking over his shoulder in the upper left of some slides. These are there to remind students to look back through the book at something they have already discussed, or look into something with more detail.
