Direct and Indirect Characterization: A Tale of Two Cities --Mr. Lorry

This Direct and Indirect Characterization: A Tale of Two Cities --Mr. Lorry lesson plan also includes:

“Very orderly and methodical he looked, with a hand on each knee, and a loud watch ticking a sonorous sermon under his flapped waistcoat, as though it pitted its gravity and longevity against the levity and evanescence of the brisk fire.” Dickens’ diction and syntax can cause readers, even those familiar with 19th Century prose, to stumble. Provide your pupils with an opportunity to tackle complex text with a series of exercises based on a brief excerpt from A Tale of Two Cities. Brief writing assignments, a fill-in-the-blank quiz, and guided questions for the passage are included in the plan.
