Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to A Christmas Carol.
The Industrial Revolution required large numbers of workers concentrated into small geographic areas. Thus cities, with their surplus population of unemployed refugees from the farms, provided an excellent location for factories. Machine made products replaced goods which had for centuries been homemade by artisans working in small shops. Ancient ways of doing business were left behind in favor of the more competitive methods of the new age. Scrooge's first employer, Mr. Fezziwig, was unable to adjust to these changes. Scrooge adapted to the new environment but lost his soul in the process.
The Learning Guide to the film A Christmas Carol contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
