Product Description
Dickens' A Christmas Carol offers students a beautiful message about the spirit of Christmas....

This activity is designed for students to complete before, during, and after viewing A Christmas Carol, the George C. Scott portrayal that aired on television in 1984. The dvd for the movie can be purchased on Amazon. Click below:

A Christmas Carol on Amazon

On the cover of the resource, I’ve included four quotes from Dickens’ novel to initiate a conversation about the universality of the story.

Following is a discussion about the reasons Dickens had for writing the novel; he originally was going to publish his ideas as a pamphlet titled, “An Appeal to the People of England on behalf of the Poor Man’s Child.”

There are five questions about the above information. These questions prompt students to think about Dickens’ observations about his society and how the author’s thoughts are still relevant today.

The movie guide is four pages, 33 questions addressing plot, character, theme, symbolism, and irony. I’ve written the questions in such a way that students can watch the movie, and answer the questions later. I usually stop 15 minutes early and discuss the questions as a group.

I end the activity with the last paragraph of Dickens’ novel and ask students if they “keep Christmas well” and what does that statement mean to us today?

The activity is formatted nicely, leaving space for students’ responses.

I’ve included graphics of people from our society that parallel the characters in the movie.

I’ve included an answer key, identical pages with proposed responses.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.

Please have a look at the preview; it's a very pretty resource!
