Consider particular aspects from Dickens' work and represent/link to more information on them. 
Some ideas might include:
•    Child Labor in the Victorian Age
•    The Education System 
•    Inheritance Laws and Practices
•    Money Lending and the Exchange
•    Courting and Marriage
•    Poverty and the Working Class
•    The practice of working families carrying their Dinners to the Bakers to be cooked (depicted in Stave Three of the story - Cale has a recipe from that era and practice that she'd be happy to share).
•    What was it that Tiny Tim was suffering from?  (Experts have conjectured for over a century, but the most recent suggestions assert it that could have been something easily treatable through diet).
