    BUNDLE EXCLUSIVE Unit Materials (32 pages)


    Want to scaffold readers into more difficult literature in a safe way? Ready to celebrate the holidays in English class while still rigorously accomplishing standards in all domains?

    This unit is a perfect way for advanced middle school or early high school to step into reading Dickens AND still get modern-day relevance!

    Using a “Random Acts of Kindness” theme, students will grapple with ethics as they not only read about Scrooge’s transformation in the novella, but also read about modern charities, complete their own Random Acts of Kindness plans, and grapple with whether or not modern society has learned anything from Scrooge.

    This 102-page/slide unit includes some items sold separately…

    • Movie Comparison Activity: compare and contrast the Disney movie with the novella! Also includes a Parent Permission Slip (for the PG-13 movie) and how the timing/scenes align to the staves.
