Charles Dickens: Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities

A four-week seminar for sixteen school teachers on Charles Dickens’s novels Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities

The "Dickens: Then and Now" seminar is a four-week exploration of multiple methods for using literature to engage critical thinking and active literacy while promoting cultural awareness and historical understanding. Designed for middle and high school teachers, the seminar critically explores two of the most frequently taught of Dickens's novels: Hard Times and A Tale of Two Cities. These two texts are ideal sites for investigation, as both are deeply engaged with political and social issues that are as relevant today as they were for Dickens and his contemporaries.
