If the event did not happen, would the story change at all? yes, because through his visits of the 3 ghost he learnt that because of his recent actions he has felt guilt and regret for not changing what happened in the past, for not being there in the present and not think of how his actions could impact the future
Did the event contribute to the conflicts in the story? yes, because in the end he changed because he was aware of his mistakes and he was aware he needed to change
Did the event move the plot along in an important way? yes, because this was the body of the story. In this section of the story, you learnt about his past (what could have contributed to the way he acts), his present (what he has missed out on and what he needs to work towards) and his future (the main driver for his transformation). Without these three aspects, there would be reason why he would feel the guilt and regret and then no reason for his transformation because he would still be oblivious to his actions
Did the event contribute to the development of any themes in the story? Yes, it introduces the themes of family, treatment of the poor, redemption, transformation and choices
Did the event cause a character to change or grow? Yes, in all three scenes Scrooge has obtained some type of growth. By visiting the past he discovered that he could connect the way he felt to the way he treats people and how he regrets his greed taking over if something that could have been a happy family and life with Belle. In the Present, he was shown the importance of family and the people around him and how to treasure those people. The last scene he was presented with was the main cause of his redemption, without that scene he wouldn't have learnt that he if he didn't want that to be his fate he needed to change the way he acted with people. Although, that is one of the most important aspects of the story it would have been nothing if he had not seen the scenes beforehand and started to change little by little.
Did the event cause you to think or feel anything? It did because it makes you reflect on your own life and knowing that we all made mistakes it gives you hope that nothing is set in stone and you can change your fate. It also shows the main themes of family and Christmas and how those, especially during this time, are heavily linked, and that you should also work towards a happier and fair future for all.
