A Christmas Carol - Fred's Christmas  

(14-slide PowerPoint and 6 worksheets)

This lesson encourages learners to explore Dickens’ presentation of Fred’s Christmas in Stave Three. 

Learners will read from, ‘"Ha, ha!" laughed Scrooge's nephew. "Ha, ha, ha!"’ down to, ‘…and he and the Spirit were again upon their travels.’

The 'Do Now Activity' is a revision task that encourages retrieval of some of the main ideas in Stave Two.  

Then, after reading the passage indicated above, learners will complete a worksheet that encourages them to think about how Fred responds to criticism of Scrooge and what Fred’s function is as a character. 

The lesson culminates in a short review which asks learners to identify five things that they have learnt about Fred during the lesson. 

Suggested answers are included for all tasks.
