Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens (Duh! :@P)

An abridged edition by Penguin Readers
Reading this with my 8th graders
Will be watching the film (I’m trying to get a copy of the musical version). Will also watch the Disney cartoon Oliver and Company to study similarities and differences between the films and the text. Lots of activities will follow.
A chance to show students one of the ways in which classic stories work their way into pop culture with examples of other classics and films.
