KS4/GCSE English: A Christmas Carol - The Market Scene  

(18-slide PowerPoint based teaching resource with 6 worksheets)  

This lesson encourages learners to examine Dickens’ presentation of the streets of Victorian London on Christmas morning. It focuses on the following passage: 

From: ‘The Ghost of Christmas Present rose…’ 

Down to: ‘…it was possible he could have done in any lofty hall’.

The lesson begins with a game based on the TV gameshow ‘Blockbusters’ that encourages revision of some of the key ideas from Staves One and Two. 

Following on from this, learners will read the passage indicated above, thinking in particular about:

- The problems that Dickens focuses the reader’s attention on

- The positive aspects of the scene

- What we learn about the Ghost of Christmas Present in this passage.

Learners will then analyse Dickens’ presentation of the market scene using a worksheet containing differentiated questions. Suggested answers are included within the PowerPoint. 

The lesson concludes with a brief learning review that asks learners to summarise what they have learnt during the lesson in three Tweets.
