A Christmas Carol.

December 12, 2012

English 1 students are currently reading the drama version of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.  They are really getting into the characters' roles! Before reading, we studied the city of London during the Victorian era, as well as the language, food, and lifestyle of the time period.  Students' researched this information in an online Internet scavenger hunt.  As we read, students' are tracing Ebenezer Scrooge's dynamic character traits.  After we wrap up the drama, we will compare literature to film by viewing segments of a few film versions of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol
