Graphic Revision Guide for A Christmas Carol specially written to support special educational needs (SEN) and lower ability students.
This Graphic Revision Guide for Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol makes studying or revising this classic book easy. Suitable for all GCSE English Literature examinations. Brilliant Publications' Graphic Revision Guide for A Christmas Carol has been specially written by Elizabeth May to support students with lower ability or special educational needs (SEN). It contains teaching resources especially tailored to strengthen the student's understanding of plot, characters, quotes, themes and more.
The book brings an element of fun and informality to the study of this classic GCSE text, 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 this book, students will gain confidence in their knowledge before jumping into the deep end.
