This pack of activities is an excellent way to add some rigor to your viewing of any version of Dickens's classic Christmas story A Christmas Carol and spread some kindness in your classroom. This is not a novel to film comparison guide. These activities are tailored specifically for the movie! You may use one or all of the enclosed NO PREP activities to focus your viewing experience or to add to your existing novel unit.

Student Experience: From a thorough active viewing guide to an analysis of symbols and theme to an explanatory prompt, your students will be challenged as you teach this film as a text. From reading charts and graphs, to reviewing plot with the interactive human plot puzzle, to analyzing symbolism, to writing this movie guide is sure to add rigor to your movie-viewing experience. I love using movie guides as students watch films because they require students to apply a wide range of strategies to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and appreciate texts beyond the surface.
