Guidelines for Christmas Carol Website

  "A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Our students will be discovering background information about the life and times of Charles Dickens through their own research as we begin a unit of study relating to the classic story "A Christmas Carol."

Students will be working in small groups to research an assigned topic using research skills such as note-taking, paraphrasing, evaluating sources, and creating a bibliography. Their final product will be to create a webpage that will be a part of a Google Site representing valuable and interesting background knowledge about "A Christmas Carol."  

Each group will also present their page and information to the class. I am very excited to guide and watch our students as they learn new technology skills and gain new knowledge about London during Dickens' time.
