A Christmas Carol - Old Fezziwig - GCSE teaching resource
KS4/GCSE English Teaching Resources: A Christmas Carol - Old Fezziwig
(20-slide PowerPoint teaching resource with 6 worksheets)
In Stave Two, Dickens introduces his readers to Scrooge’s antithesis as an employer, Old Fezziwig. This resource for KS4/GCSE enables learners to gain an insight into the scriptural basis for this important character. It includes:
- A differentiated 'Do Now' worksheet task in which learners reflect on the significance of three passages from scripture and how Dickens alludes to them in Stave One.
- Learners will then read from, ‘The Ghost stopped at a certain warehouse door…’ down to ‘”…That’s all”’, thinking about how Dickens presents the character of Fezziwig and Scrooge’s relationship with him. For greater challenge, learners will also reflect on how Scrooge has failed to live up to the example that Fezziwig set for him.
Following on from this, learners will undertake a magazine-style quiz from both Scrooge’s and Fezziwig’s perspective. The quiz is entitled ‘Are you a good, Christian employer?’ and encourages learners to think about how Dickens uses the character of Fezziwig to illustrate that one can be both a capitalist and a Christian.
The lesson is fully differentiated (Gold, Silver and Bronze tasks) and concludes with a learning review.
