Transcript

  • 1. Gregory Maguire’s
    The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
  • 2. Good vs. Evil
    Most know L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz.
    The story were good triumphed over evil and all was right again.
    But…
    What if…
    Dorothy made a MISTAKE?
  • 3. What if…
    The Wicked Witch of the West
    was just misunderstood?
    There was a good reason she was wicked?
    The Wicked Witch of the East or the West neither one deserved their fate?
  • 4. What if…
    Glenda was not as “good” as everyone thought?
    The Wicked Witch of the West really didn’t want to hurt Dorothy and her friends?
    The Wicked Witch just wanted what was rightfully hers?
  • 5. Ask yourself…
    Why did the Wizard really want The Wicked Witch of the West dead?
    Why didn’t Glenda tell Dorothy about the magic shoes before her quest?
    Why didn’t Glenda or the Wizard kill the Wicked Witches themselves?
  • 6. Did you ever wonder…
    Why was the Wicked Witch green?
    Why some of the animals could talk, but not all?
    How the Wizard became all powerful?
    If Glenda went to witch school with The Wicked Witch of the West or East or both?
    If they went to school together, were they ever friends?
  • 7. Now…
    Did Dorothy make a mistake?
    Or was she an unfortunate puppet in a more sinister plot?
    You be the judge.
  • 8. Read…
