* Study and take vocabulary test between Friday and Sunday, midnight on ClassMarker.com

Be sure to show your character's personality and try to include at least 2 figures of speech and either symbolism, foreshadowing or irony. Remember, fiction is based on conflict.

3. How does Dickens satirize public education in this chapter?
