KS3/4 English Lesson – A Christmas Carol Lesson and Quote Analysis Tasks

This lesson focuses on the opening of A Christmas Carol and Dickens’ description of Scrooge, including a starter activity getting students to look closely at the deeper meaning, rather than just looking at a quote at surface level.

This is part of a larger scheme of work on this Dickens classic, and is one of 12 detailed lessons that break down each chapter, key themes and ideas of the novel. Literacy activities and quotes analysis tasks have been included as class starters/settlers.
