A Christmas Carol - Belle's Family  

(19-slide PowerPoint teaching resource with 3 worksheets) 

This lesson enables learners to explore Dickens’ presentation of Belle’s family in Stave Two. It also encourages learners to reflect on how Scrooge has changed throughout the course of the Stave.  

There is a differentiated Do Now task which encourages revision of some of the key ideas in Stave Two. 

Following on from this, learners will read from, ‘”No more!” cried Scrooge’, down to ‘…he sank into a heavy sleep’, thinking about: 

How Belle’s and Scrooge’s lives contrast

How Dickens presents Belle’s family

How Dickens presents Scrooge’s reaction to this ‘shadow’. 

Learners will then reflect on the lessons that Scrooge has learnt in Stave Two as a result of the ‘shadows’ presented to him. This activity involves linking characters, lessons and quotations and there are two different ways of approaching it, depending on the needs of your group. Please see the preview for further insight into the two options available to teachers.

The lesson concludes with a learning review which asks learners to think of words to describe Scrooge at the beginning, the middle and the end of Stave Two.
