7th grade Parents- Dickens Day One

Today in class, we’re reading "Excerpt from 'A Christmas Carol': Marley's Ghost" by Charles Dickens.

   We will be reading various scenes from A Christmas Carol all week. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. 

In the first chapter of A Christmas Carol, titled “Marley’s Ghost,” a greedy old miser by the name of Ebenezer Scrooge is visited in the night by an old friend, who warns him to change his ways before it is too late.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Identity and Power & Greed as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Does money buy happiness?" and "Can you change your identity?"
