This engaging and informative lesson enables students to make insightful and developed interpretations of Dickens’ use of language in describing ‘The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come’ in A Christmas Carol. In particular, they explore how the descriptive language used to describe the appearance, mannerisms, and movements aid the haunting portrayal of the ghost.

The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through:

- Identifying and exemplifying the key language features used by Dickens in describing the ghost, including its appearance, actions, and mannerisms;
- Analysing the extent to which the language used creates a haunting and imposing image of the ghost;
- Peer assessing each other's learning attempts.
