PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If your teens come to you at Christmas-time having read all the famous canonical pieces, but you still want to incorporate some holiday-themed materials, this close reading from a famous author and a paired modern movie will certainly capture their attention. Or, if you are just looking for a lesson with a text that is challenging enough for high school students but will still relate to their world, this would be an excellent choice.

The lesson offers several opportunities for students to enter an excerpt from Dickens's narrative essay, "What Christmas is as We Grow Older," and truly close read and dissect it. Then the unit closes with a pairing of the film Christmas with the Kranks based on the novel Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.

All texts, worksheets, prompts, CCSS links, teacher's guides, answers, and optional sub plans are included. The only thing you will need to purchase/rent additionally is the movie. See the preview file!
