English - In the spotlight
Charles Dickens conference
The English Association will be holding a conference on 12 December for teachers at the Museum of London to take advantage of its new Dickens and London exhibition.
It is being organised in conjunction with the Dickens House Museum and the Dickens Fellowship, and follows on from the association's conference at the British Library in November last year.
Dickens enthusiasts will have the chance to join panel discussions and plenary sessions and gain discounted entry to the exhibitions and workshops at the Museum of London.
Tickets cost #163;75 per delegate. The closing date for bookings is 28 November.

There is a wealth of Dickens resources available at TES Resources. For a sample of what has been shared by teachers, try a Great Expectations workbook from littlegiggles, an independent homework project from English.teacher, and resources from the British Library that help put Dickens in context.
