Dickensian Characters


Whilst plot is important, the characters are often what truly bring a story to life. Taking inspiration from the Victorian author’s most spectacular works, this pack teaches children the art of character development by focusing on a master of the form – Charles Dickens. These Dickens teaching resources introduce children to famous Dickensian characters such as Oliver Twist and Scrooge, whilst guiding them through the process of creating their own powerful and engaging characters.


The popularity of tales such as Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol are testament to Dicken’s character building and classic storytelling capabilities.
