A Christmas Carol For EDUs: Three Lessons From the Ghosts

I’ve always been mesmerized by A Christmas Carol.  Since I was a child, I’ve read the story countless times and continue to find new connections to my pesonal and professional life.  I love how Dickens vividly drives home the themes of change and redemption using the messages of the three ghosts.  These timeless lessons can certainly be applied to the field of education in three main ways:

Lesson 1:

Lesson 2:

Lesson 3:

The ability to continually monitor and adjust one’s thinking is a characteristic I strive to instill in my students.  Teachers can learn valuable messages from each of Dickens’ Christmas ghosts which can in turn be shared with their students.  We must always be aware of the lessons from the past and the present as we make an effort to grow personally and professionally in order to optimize future learning experiences for ourselves and our charges.

I believe it’s important to avoid complacency at all costs!
