Free Lesson Plan: Imagery and the Ghosts of A Christmas Carol

You can’t teach A Christmas Carol without discussing its iconic spirits: the Ghost of Jacob Marley, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Since the novella’s publication, these spirits remain popular characters because of their imaginative portrayals. Author Charles Dickens took great care in characterizing each Ghost, helping them materialize in readers’ imaginations.

In this free lesson plan, students are presented with four passages from the story in which Dickens describes the Ghosts in detail. Using the imagery in the text, students will create their own visual interpretations of each Ghost. Encourage them to get creative!
