Core Curriculum Links

Part of our goal with The Hangar's A Christmas Carol to the Finger Lakes is to help educators bring this timeless story into the classroom. See below for the intersections of our program and the the Core Curriculum standards.


Reading Literature: Key Ideas and Details

  • Grade 5: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges.
  • Grades 6-8: Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text.
  • Grades 9-10: Analyze how complex characters (e.g. those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the themes. 

Reading Literature: Craft and Structure

  • Grades 9-10: Analyze how an author's choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it (e.g., parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing, flashbacks) create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise.
