GCSE English Teaching Resources: A Christmas Carol - The Cratchits Part 3  

This lesson enables learners to continue to explore Dickens’ presentation of the Cratchit family in Stave Three. Please note that it focuses on the following passage: 

From: ‘Such a bustle ensued…’ 

Down to: ‘…to hint at such a thing.’

The lesson begins with a differentiated 'Do Now' starter activity in which learners examine a range of quotations from Staves 1-3 with a view to deciding which is the odd one out. Suggested answers are included. This is followed by a revision task in which learners decide which four out of a possible eight statements about the Cratchits are true. Following on from this, learners will read the passage indicated above. Learners will then analyse Dickens’ presentation of the Cratchits by responding to prompts on a passage-based worksheet. Suggested ideas are included on the PowerPoint. The lesson concludes with a quick plenary that asks learners to summarise what they have learnt about the Cratchits during the lesson in no more than 20, 15 or 10 words.
