A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Lesson Plans by Becky Harvey

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is a story of a broken man whose wealth has become his only passion in life. As a young man, Ebenezer Scrooge had love and family in his life, but after many setbacks, he lost the desire to be, in essence, a caring human being. One lonely and cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge goes to bed and is “visited” by four ghosts: his old (deceased) business partner, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and the Ghost of Christmas Future. After an eye-opening adventure, traveling through time and memories, as well as a chillingly, frighteningly lonely visit to his potential future, Scrooge sees the error of his miserly ways and wakes up Christmas morning a new man, full of life, love and excitement to share his wealth and company with the people with whom he shares his life.
