A Christmas Carol - Ghost of Christmas Present Part Two
(14-slide PowerPoint with 2 worksheets)
This short lesson is the second in a trilogy of lessons on the Ghost of Christmas Present at the beginning of Stave Three. Before purchasing, please note that it focuses on the following passage:
From: ‘”Come in!” exclaimed the Ghost…’
Down to: ‘“A tremendous family to provide for,” replied Scrooge’.
The lesson begins with a Do Now task which asks learners to read and reflect on a short passage explaining the origins of the term Plenty’s horn.
Following on from this, learners will read the above passage, focusing on:
How Dickens presents Scrooge as he enters the room
Why the Ghost has ‘more than eighteen hundred brothers’
The significance of Scrooge’s response to the Ghost at the end of the passage.
Learners will then examine two images. One of these is the John Leech illustration of the Ghost of Christmas Present from 1843. The other is a drawing of Old Christmas from December 1842. Learners will consider the similarities and differences between the two images and suggest inferences that can be made about the Ghost based on the image of Old Christmas.
The lesson concludes with a brief learning review.
