During the holiday season my students have been working on an extensive unit on Dickens and Drama. We just finished reading the play A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley dramatized by Israel Horovitz: adapted from Charles Dickens, and today I asked them to share their thoughts about the play. Here are some of their comments on A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley:
"The play, A Christmas Carol, was fantastic. I like that it's a story about an old greedy miser, in the beginning, but at the end the greedy miser, Scrooge, has completely changed due to the visits by the three Christmas spirits."-Emma
"I liked A Christmas Carol. It had a little humor and taught a very good lesson."- Elijah
"A Christmas Carol was extremely good and really set the Christmas mood. It kept you reading because you never knew what was going to happen next."-Logan
"A Christmas Carol was awesome becasue it shows how a mean miser can turn nice."-Courtney
"A Christmas Carol, the play, brought back Charles Dickens old classic in a unique way."-Caleb F.
"A Christmas Carol was good. I liked Act 2 the best because that is when Scrooge starts to change for the better."-Trinity
