This Graphic Revision Guide for A Christmas Carol is an essential tool for anyone studying this book for GCSE English Literature. It contains comic-style sheets, especially tailored to strengthen the student's understanding of plot, characters, quotes, themes and more; through using them, learning and revising this iconic novel will become an easier and more enjoyable experience. Students with special educational needs (SEN) will find it particularly beneficial.

These books bring an element of fun and informality to the study of GCSE texts, repackaging large amounts of complex information in an engaging and simple manner. Studying the sheets doesn’t seem like reading or working, yet having these graphic sheets in front of them helps students immensely in understanding and sequencing the plot, remembering key events, distinguishing between characters and understanding characters’ perspectives.

Although initially designed to help and support SEN students, the author soon found that all the students in the class wanted copies of the graphic sheets and benefited from using them. Many students find it difficult to remember what happened in a book and in what order, let alone to write a timed essay picking apart the intricacies of it. With these books, students will gain confidence in their knowledge before jumping into the deep end.

This book contains:

  • Visual summaries of the plot
  • Character profiles, including a fact file and quotes from the book
  • Exploration of key themes and the context for the book
  • Additional graphic reference material, to help students understand the setting of the book
  • Activity sheets, including matching quotes to pictures, vocabulary building and drawing character maps.

The resources are printed in black and white for easy photocopying and enlarging.

Which ghost visits Scrooge first? How does Scrooge change his ways? Do you think Scrooge would be a good boss?

After completing these sheets your students will have these answers at their fingertips.
