2012 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of the English language's most famous writers. The following links and activities are suggestions to help students explore Charles Dickens' work, and the environment of Victorian London in which he lived and set many of his stories.
The creative writing activity is presented with the kind permission of the Charles Dickens Museum in London. Although it was originally designed to be used by visitors to the Dickens Museum, it can also be adapted for use without visiting the museum. Please see the suggestions link above for ideas.
