‘It’s a tough gig to write a book that is both academic and accessible. And yet Stuart and Amy have pulled this off. It is a brilliant boon to the English teaching community.’ - Mary Myatt Ready to Teach: A Christmas Carol brings together the deep subject knowledge, resources and classroom strategies needed to teach Dickens’s most famous Christmas story, as well as the pedagogical theory behind why these ideas work, helping teachers to deliver a knowledge-rich curriculum with impact. With fresh approaches building on the success of Ready to Teach: Macbeth, each chapter contains lesson-by-lesson essays and commentaries that enhance subject knowledge on key areas of the text alongside fully resourced lessons reflecting current and dynamic best practice. The book also offers an introduction to the key pedagogical concepts which underpin the lessons and why they are proven to help students develop powerful knowledge and key skills. Whether you are new to teaching or looking for different ways into the text, Ready to Teach: A Christmas Carol is the ideal companion to the study of this 19th century classic. With a foreword by Mary Myatt.
