Show synopsis Charles Dickens' novels, with their memorable characters and dramatic plots, have a particular appeal to students. For instructors, they also offer a wealth of opportunities for teaching. This entry in the "Classical Comics" series features one of Dickens' best-loved works, the autobiographical story of the orphan Pip and his progress from childhood to adulthood. Designed to be used alongside the "Great Expectations" graphic novels, this resource book can also be used with any version of the story. Like the other titles in this series, it includes a broad range of topics - from structure, listening, and understanding to key words, themes, and literary techniques. The exercises span curriculums to cover not only literature and literacy, but also history, technology, drama, reading, and more. The book includes activities based on Dickens' background; a chapter-by-chapter synopsis; linking characters with their descriptions; a Snakes and Ladders game about Dickens' life; wordsearch and anagrams; and a wealth of other activities.
