A Christmas Carol - Project Based Assessment - Research Assignment

A Christmas Carol Presentation

You will become an expert on one aspect of Victorian life and in a brief presentation; you will explain the topic and show it is connected to A Christmas Carol with a visual aid. The presentation will count for a major grade. Here are the steps:

Step 1: As you read, listen, and view the story A Christmas Carol, you will take notes on different references to Victorian life using a graphic organizer provided by your teacher.

Step 2: When we finish with the play, you will be assigned a particular aspect of Victorian life to research when we return from the break. You could be assigned one of the following:

Family Life                        Daily Life for Children                  Food                     Homes

Clothes                                 Workhouses                                      Factories             Leisure Activities

You will use the following websites to gather information on your topic:

 http://primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/victorians.html

http://www.shelbycs.org/ms/media%20center/victorian%20england/

Be sure to cite the website and write down at least five facts about your topic.

Step 3: Create your presentation. Your presentation should meet the following requirements:

·         Five facts about your topic. Cite your research.

·         A comparison between A Christmas Carol and your research to show how your topic connects to the movie or play. Remember to write the page number.

o   Example:  If you had Victorian money as your topic, you could write, “Come back here with the man, Adam, and I’ll give you a shilling.  Come back here with him in less than five minutes, and I’ll give you half-a-crown.” (p. 723).  The research states that a half-a-crown was worth more than a shilling. (Victorian England: An Introduction).

·         A visual representation of your topic (Powerpoint or poster with a photograph, drawing, etc.)

·         Citations

·         Don’t forget your name!
