A Christmas Carol - Scrooge and Belle

(19-slide PowerPoint teaching resource with 2 worksheets) 

This lesson enables learners to explore Dickens’ presentation of the end of Scrooge’s relationship with Belle in Stave Two. It includes: 

- A differentiated 'Do Now' task which encourages revision of some of the key ideas in Stave One. 

- Following on from the above, learners will read from, ‘His former self turned down the lamps…’ down to ‘”One shadow more!”, thinking about: Why Belle chose to end her relationship with Scrooge; how Dickens presents Scrooge in this passage and how our understanding of Scrooge’s character is developed as a result of what Dickens reveals in this part of the book.

- There is also a detailed analysis of two of the passage’s more complex ideas, including Scrooge’s worship of the ‘golden idol’. 

- Learners will then complete a ‘how far do you agree?’ activity involving a differentiated range of statements on the subject of Scrooge and Belle’s breakup. 

The lesson concludes with a learning review which asks learners to summarise why Scrooge and Belle broke up in no more than 15, 10 or 5 words.
