A Christmas Carol Revision Mat

A hand drawn revision resource I created for my Year 11 Middle set to help them remember key facts about the novel. I've used this A4 for the pupils but it was created A3 (could use in a classroom display perhaps). If useful, please have a look at my other items as I've made similar mats for Macbeth, An Inspector Calls, Romeo and Juliet and Punctuation and grammar. I'm hoping to make one for as many literature texts as possible so let me know in comments/reviews what you'd like one for and I'll put it to the top of my 'to draw' list!

A Christmas Carol Cratchits High Ability

(2)
This is aimed towards teaching pupils how to write band 5/6 responses. The lesson revolves around a book about the sentimentalisation of the poor/children and families in Victorian fiction and gives pupils a valuable insight into how their presentation pertains to the typical presentation of families and children at the time and the meanings behind their characterisation. I taught this to top set year 11 and no one achieved below a 7 in their assessment on the extract. Based on the extract where the Cratchit family are introduced. Plan for roughly 20-25 minutes worth of teacher-led discussion to ensure this ideas are fully understood. This is not the extract from the Summer '17 exam which means they will be able to make perceptive links but not be overly scaffolded prior to mock examinations. PLEASE REVIEW
