A Christmas Carol - Scrooge's Childhood  

KS4/GCSE English Teaching Resources: A Christmas Carol - Stave 2: Scrooge's Childhood 

(20-slide PowerPoint presentation with 3 worksheets)

In Stave Two, the Ghost of Christmas Past encourages Scrooge to reflect on the time that he was abandoned at boarding school by his emotionally-distant father. This resource for KS4/GCSE enables learners to explore Dickens’ presentation of this unhappy time in Scrooge’s life. 

It includes: 

- A differentiated Do Now task in which learners must make three different, valid sentences relevant to Stave One using the words contained in three separate grids. 

- Learners will then read from, ‘Scrooge reverently disclaimed any knowledge…’ down to ‘…and the streets were lighted up’, thinking about why Scrooge was unhappy at boarding school, how Dickens presents Scrooge’s unhappiness and the effects of this experience on Scrooge’s emotional development. 

- Following on from this, learners will undertake a differentiated task that encourages them to consider the significance of three different characters from the stories that Scrooge read as a child. This could be done in pairs. 

- The lesson concludes with a 3-2-1 learning review.
