A Christmas Carol

Audiobook, online text, and other resources

Hello Grade 10s! For our next unit, we will be reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Below I have embedded the audio version of the story, separated into five staves. I have also included the link to the online text copy that is annotated with various explanations and videos. Finally, I have provided links to information on a few of the stronger adaptations and parodies of A Christmas Carol. If you struggle with the 'old-fashioned' language Dickens uses, watching an adaptation may guide you through later reading. However, there are significant differences between the original text and the various adaptations. As a result, adaptations should not be used to replace the reading, but to supplement it.
