My students need copies of Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" for our rigorous unit surrounding the theme of redemption. This classic novel will allow my students to explore how history impacts literature.
Welcome to our engaging ELA classroom! We are a group of 7th grade public school students who love to read and analyze literature for deeper, more meaningful interpretations. We truly take reading to the next level by focusing on deep symbolic representations and making real life connections to literary texts.
We live by the words of Dr Seuss: "Oh, the places you'll go." Through literature, we travel, throughout time and history, to far off lands and exciting spaces becoming explorers and navigators via the words on the pages of the great texts before us.
Books are our vehicle for exploration and we just can't get enough!
This classic Christmas novel will supplement a unit on redemption by allowing students to explore how history impacts literature. While many students have seen adaptations of this classic story, there is value in reading the original, especially to teach the theme of redemption. Middle school students can learn this most valuable lesson through the story of Scrooge and his misdoings.
In class, this literary classic will be used to teach the theme of redemption: a lesson that most middle school learners will remember for years to come.
Just as Scrooge learns from his past, my students will learn from theirs.
