A Christmas Carol - The Royal Exchange
(17-slide PowerPoint teaching resource with 7 worksheets)
This GCSE lesson enables learners to explore Dickens’ presentation of the businessmen discussing Scrooge’s death in Stave Four.
It begins with a differentiated retrieval task as a 'Do Now' activity.
Learners will then read from ‘They scarcely seemed to enter the city’, down to, ‘It made him shudder, and feel very cold’. During their reading, learners are asked to reflect on:
- What we learn about Scrooge’s death
- How the men feel about Scrooge’s death
- What their dialogue suggests about Scrooge.
Following on from this, learners will complete a worksheet that enables them to explore the passage in greater depth.
The lesson concludes with a brief learning review in which learners answer five retrieval questions relating to the passage.
