    Bundle Description

    Our A Christmas Carol Unit Teaching Package has 180+ pages and slides of engaging activities. Learners will enjoy the rigor and creativity in these standards-aligned resources built from best practices.

    This world today works really hard to get us thinking about ourselves. It's gets us so focused on our needs and wants for today that we lose track the grand picture of our lives. It's gets us thinking that if we take care of we and ours then everything will be just dandy. Humbug to the rest!

    That is what makes A Christmas Carol so timeless. Scrooge's journey toward seeing the world around him and all its needs is a journey our students could use as much as we could. The 3 ghosts have messages for our culture today to think about and discuss. Like we said ... timeless.

    What other teachers are saying about this literature unit:

    ♥ I started by using the freebies and then realized that I "needed" all of it! Very comprehensive yet easy to use. I wish I had the time to use this resource in its entirety. Good stuff!

    ♥ I absolutely love every novel study that I get from you guys. I think this is my 9th unit and I love them all. This one lives up to the expectations of all of the rest. Thank you, again, for providing a bomb-diggity resource that my students are going to learn a lot from.

    ♥ Thank you for creating a great resource that I can use with my 7th and 8th graders. Created for Learning is the first place I stop before purchasing a new novel study unit. This is the third bundle I have purchased from you and am so happy to use the study units with my classes. There is an abundance of useful products in each unit. I even use them with my SPED kids. Thanks again for creating a wonderful product.

    ♥ This is the second product I've downloaded of yours and it is fantastic! I'm very excited to use this with my middle grades students. I'm usually wary of spending so much on a product from a user I'm not familiar with, but this is going to be worth every penny. Thank you for your thorough work and for sharing this with us!

    ♥ This was a fantastic purchase and was appropriate for my 7th grade students. It has everything I needed in one package!

    ♥ Great for my 8th graders! The curriculum map is helpful and takes the stress out of planning!!!

    ♥ I used this before Christmas for my 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. There is plenty suitable for each level; the basics in plot, character, and setting were perfect for the 6th graders, and my 8th graders were challenged by the figurative language sections. This unit was a great purchase, and I look forward to using it again! I also appreciated the visual impact of the plans; the coordinating graphics gave a fun and festive mood.

    ♥ I want to mention that it's great for a variety of levels -- it's always tough teaching multiple grade levels and these types of products make it much easier. Thank you!
