Before reading Charles Dickenson's "A Christmas Carol", students conducted research on the historical context that the book was written. Students are learning about mid-19th century in order to create background knowledge prior to reading. Students reviewed some vocabulary words and wrote definitions of each word.
As students read each Stave of the book, they will complete activities in class. Once we have finished reading, if time allows, we will watch the movie version and compare it to the book.
