This series of lessons, teaching materials and powerpoint slides has been produced to assist in your teaching of Charles Dickens’ popular short novel, ‘A Christmas Carol’. The novel is taught for many examination boards, but is especially popular with teachers of WJEC English Literature Unit 2 (Qu. 2), an examined unit. It is also a popular novel for KS3, although the language of Dickens undoubtedly poses difficulties for younger readers.

As a starter for Lesson 10, I intend to show an image of a ‘starving white girl’ from Google Images, elicit responses, then play the Band Aid Christmas song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjQzJAKxTrE.
