From Expert ELA, this zip file contains materials for the first three staves of A Christmas Carol. Reading passages are tailored for partner reading, with in-text questions modeled on the close reads recommended by Common Core developers. Chapters are divided into two parts for reading chapters over the course of two classes.
This file also includes one 10-question textual analysis of the famous description of Ebenezer Scrooge with multiple choice questions.
With time for completion and additional classroom activities, the whole book should take approximately ten days.
Note: I do not have activities for the remainder of the novel, but this is an excellent time-saving start that gets students to read and write critically.
