Wants: ___________________________
But: _____________________________
So: _______________________________ *In Pairs: Briefly Scan the scene and in your RJ's, construct a summary (6min). Then we will share whole group! My Summary: At the beginning of the scene, Past takes Scrooge to his hometown as a boy. After some time, Scrooge and Past come upon boy Scrooge sitting alone weeping, “a solitary child.” Then, all of a sudden, there is a flash of light on stage and the setting changes to Scrooge's schoolroom where we see young Scrooge reading by himself. Next, Scrooges sister, Fan enters and requests that young Scrooge joins his family for Christmas. The Schoolmaster enters and we can tell that Scrooge is intimidated/frightened by him. But Fan is very gentle and warm towards the Schoolmaster which surprises both him and young Scrooge. Later, we learn from Past that Fan died as a woman but had a child who we know as Scrooge’s nephew. The setting changes again and we are located in a warehouse where the now “Man” Scrooge was an apprentice to Mr. Fezziwig. We are introduced to both Mr. Fezziwig and Dick (a fellow apprentice) as they take part in his Christmas celebration. Finally, we are introduced to the “Woman” in past Scrooges life. They argue with great intensity over their relationship. Woman argues that Man Scrooge has changed - that he is in love with a “golden idol” instead of herself. The argument ends with them parting ways. Both Scrooge’s are in great turmoil. The scene ends with a terrifying image of ghostly faces swirling in the air and then an ominous monologue by Marley which foretells great turmoil ahead. Theme 1. Characters?: ____________________________________ 2. Characters beginning situation: ____________________ 3. Characters end situation: __________________________ 4. What did they learn?: _____________________________ 5. Explain: ________________________________________ *In pairs: Take 6min and QUIETLY (cafe/library voice) come up with 1-2 themes for Act I Scene V (or prediction of theme for ACT II) and write them down in your RJ's.

When finished, join hands and silently put them in air so I can come assess your answers! My Theme: *The past can teach us valuable lessons and it is never to late to change.
Characters: Fezziwig, Dick and Man Scrooge
Characters Beginning Situation: They are jovial and merrily celebrating the holiday season together.
Characters End Situation: Old Scrooge remembers the profound influence that Fezziwig had on them as their mentor. Scrooge now appreciates how kind and generous their employer was.

character traits: jovial, melancholic, merry, jocund, despondent, thoughtful, helpful, generous, destitute
plot: exposition, rising action, who is the passage mainly about? what does the main character desire? what stops the main character from achieving their goal? so what does our character do to resolve the situation? In whole group let's read this passage and follow the summary steps! The Miser
A MISER sold all that he had and bought a lump of gold, which he
buried in a hole in the ground by the side of an old wall and
went to look at daily. One of his workmen observed his frequent
visits to the spot and decided to watch his movements. He soon
discovered the secret of the hidden treasure, and digging down,
came to the lump of gold, and stole it. The Miser, on his next
visit, found the hole empty and began to tear his hair and to
make loud lamentations. A neighbor, seeing him overcome with
grief and learning the cause, said, "Pray do not grieve so; but
go and take a stone, and place it in the hole, and fancy that the
gold is still lying there. It will do you quite the same
service; for when the gold was there, you had it not, as you did
not make the slightest use of it." Silently fill your Summary Guideline In as we do it Whole Group! Somebody: _________________ Wants: _____________________ But: _________________________ So: ________________________ The miser wants to have his treasure/gold back in the hole where he buried it. one of his workers has stolen the gold from The miser's hole. a neighbor approaches The Miser and advises him to instead bury a rock because it will function the same way the gold did - just laying in the hole with no real purpose.
