The classic Christmas story of greed, cold-heartedness, and redemption. Ebenezer Scrooge is content with his life of work and petty self-interest - or he would be if he were content with anything. He is unfriendly to his nephew, cruel to his employee, and verbally abusive to charity collectors. On Christmas Eve, the ghost of his old partner, Jacob Marley, appears to Scrooge to warn him to change his ways. Bound in chains and tormented by his mistakes, Marley tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three Spirits. These Spirits offer Scrooge a chance to escape the same fate as Marley, but will Scrooge listen to their lesson of redemption and reawaken to the commandment, "Love your neighbor?"
Our Interactive Study Guide will open with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.0+. You may still print off the study guide just as before. But with the interactive files, students have the capability of entering their answers directly on the computer and saving their work in progress.
I purchased this downloadable/interactive study guide for my 8th grade son and daughter. The downloadable guides are great for printing off multiple copies, and a master for me. I like that I can make my purchase on the website, and instantly have my guide! And, no need to store CDs in our school closet.
I like that the study has a variety of comprehension questions, multiple choice, and essays. The questions have led to many good discussions about the author, time period, and character development. I have purchased at least half a dozen study guides by Progeny Press, and have continued to be pleased with the selection of literature, price, and choice of either downloadable or CD products.
This is the second Progeny Press guide that we've used with our HS kids. The questions are spot-on regarding the books but shine most in the discussions they spark. I actually had purchased a guide from a different company for this book and ended up buying this guide and using it instead. These guides are excellent! We definitely will be purchasing more from this company.
I bought for my daughter. From glancing through, the guide seems to be to the point and easy to follow.
Loved it! Very helpful!!!
My son really enjoys every study guide we get from Progeny Press! He enjoys the interactive ones he can do online. He is enjoying the Christmas Carol and learning a lot. He enjoys how everything is sectioned out and easy to understand.
