A Christmas Carol - The Cratchits Part 4  

(17-slide editable PowerPoint and 2 worksheets) 

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

From: ‘At last the dinner was all done…’ 

Down to: ‘…on hearing his own name.’

The lesson begins with a differentiated ‘Do Now’ starter activity which encourages revision and retrieval of quotations from the novella so far. 

In preparation for their reading, learners will then consider how an image of a caterpillar eating a leaf might represent Scrooge. The image is intended to illustrate the idea of the ‘insect on the leaf’ metaphor contained within the passage. Learners will then read the passage indicated above and following on from this, they will respond to five passage-focused tasks on a worksheet. Suggested answers are included on the PowerPoint. 

The lesson concludes with a quick plenary that asks learners to think of points that either support or challenge a statement regarding the Cratchits’ function in Stave Three.
