(28-slide PowerPoint teaching resource with 9 worksheets)
This double lesson enables learners to explore the background to – and Dickens’ presentation of – the Ghost of the Christmas Yet to Come in A Christmas Carol.
It begins with a differentiated retrieval task as a Do Now starter activity.
Learners will then read from the beginning of Stave Four down to ‘…and carried him along’. During their reading, learners are asked to reflect on:
What we learn about the Ghost in terms of its outward appearance
How the Ghost communicates with Scrooge
What the Ghost’s form seems to suggest about Scrooge’s future.
Following on from this, learners will complete a worksheet that enables them to compare the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come with the Grim Reaper.
After feedback, learning is reviewed and this constitutes the end of the first part of the lesson.
In Part 2, the Do Now task asks learners to identify the odd image out on three rows, with the bronze row being the easiest and the gold row being the most difficult.
After giving feedback, learners will then use a second worksheet to focus on Dickens’ presentation of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Suggested answers for this and the Do Now task are included.
