This short online course explores strategies to kick-start or revitalise your teaching of Dickens’ classic short novel. Suitable for anyone teaching the novel to KS3 or KS4, it will primarily look at ways to encourage students to think hard about the novel, generating ideas that they can then use in original personal and critical responses.

NB: This is a repeat course.
