Product Description
Five crimes, and three opinions for each: Charles Dickens, society today, and the student. Expand it to 10 crimes if you like. My goal was to spend a class period working on this and discussing it, but you could take it further.

I worked in a very conservative suburb. As we read Dickens, the students didn't seem to understand why people might break the law, since you can only be successful if you work hard and follow the rules (American Dream). I used this assignment in order demonstrate that Dickens was not just about feeling sorry for criminals and that ancient punishments might have been a bit harsh. However, I also wanted to avoid preaching at the students (which is what they were feeling Dickens was doing).

I used this while teach A Tale of Two Cities, but I assume other works by Charles Dickens would fit just as well.
