ce qu'en dit wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_the_Red-Nosed_Reindeer
CBS en a fait un personnage d'une série pour enfants. Voyez cet extrait "why don't I fit in" où sont père le force à cacher son nez rouge ' out of self respect'. Un petit dessin animé sympa pour faire réfléchir les élèves sur la différence (discrimination) en anglais et autour de Noël.

Littérature : nouvelles de Noël
- By Charles Dickens
Dickens wrote several Christmas stories. The most famous is "A Christmas Carol", but you can also read these other Christmas stories:
A Christmas Tree
What Christmas is as we Grow Older
The Poor Relation's Story
The Child's Story
The Schoolboy's Story
Nobody's Story
http://www.authorsdirectory.com/b/cdscs10.htm
"A Christmas Carol" is an interesting way to introduce students to the Victorian way of life. This theme can be linked to Oliver Twist and to Christmas. You can download the full text at:
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/46
then here is an excellent page of resources, including several sites of reading notes, learning guides and projects:
http://www.webenglishteacher.com/dickens.html#chrcar
and two webquests (remember to go through all the links before you use the webquests because some links are broken and you will have to replace them or suggest another way of completing the task):
A well organised webquest, with students working in teams to perform different roles and study different aspects of the problem: Scrooge is running for Mayor and want to convey what he has learnt to the citizens and help them change things for the better. This webquest includes information from the novel, but also from several online sources of information about life in the Victorian period.
http://www.coollessons.org/Dickens.htm
Another webquest, only based on the novel/play. The content and the process are easier and interesting, but I think it needs to be adapted and can't be used as is. The students take the roles of the three ghosts, but the first task each time requires the students to draw a picture of themselves as the ghost, and this is neither useful nor interesting for our ESL students.
