Story written by, Charles Dickens. Pop up and flip book combined.
The target audience for A Christmas Carol are children to young adults or students who are in 4th to 12th grade. There are several versions of the tale.
I provide you with links for the play version, the full text, a free audio book, and a YouTube search link with several video versions for free.

Symbolism Chart Fill in with Quotes

Flip Book Directions
Great story for the winter holidays. And a nice way to read a Christmas tale that doesn’t stress religion. The story focuses on the dynamic character, greed, charity, and goodwill.
Appropriate for several grades, due to the appeal, range of vocabulary, and versions available. Pop Up Flipbook can be modified by guided practice, abbreviated assignment, read aloud, pair work, and mini lessons.
Medieval Theatre and Everyman Writing Assignment
This is a great creative writing assignment that goes really well with The Canterbury Tales. I used this assignment while teaching theatre. The Everyman is timeless and universal. Make connections to our Everyman in today’s society.
This pack includes:
Medieval Drama / Theatre Terms and Notes Handouts
-robin hood plays
-medieval theatre background and history
-floor plan of a cathedral for medieval drama performances
Everyman Assignment Details for Writing the Script or creative short story, focuses on high school issues and the Everyman of today.
Everyman Creative Writing Assignment Rubric
Medieval Period Test and Key
For Differentiation: The creative writing assignment can lead to a class presentation or performance. So you can grade them on both!
For using this assignment in English Language Arts, I recommend it at the college prep level and above. In a performing arts class using it in an introduction course is appropriate.

All materials have been used in a small group setting as well as in a mainstream classroom. This pack can easily be implemented in an accelerated class by moving up due dates and independent readings.
I valued this product as an “extremely great deal” to ensure that a TpT buyer saves money by purchasing this product rather than buying each pack separately.
