Read Extract 2 from 'A Christmas Carol.'

Highlight any vocabulary that you do not know and use a dictionary to find the meaning.


If you were away from school on Friday, you might want to watch a short film showing the story
to help you understand what has happened to Scrooge in
between the two extracts (short retellings are available on YouTube.)


Think about the following:

  • How has Scrooge's view of Christmas changed?
  • Why has this change happened?
  • What does Fred (Scrooge's nephew) think about this change?
  • How does the author’s choice of language show how
    Scrooge has changed?


Give reasons for your answers based on evidence from the text or from any film extracts you have seen.
