What ideas have you got so far?
Have you thought about Scrooge's development throughout the novella?

All I have a understanding of is that, Scrooge starts off accepting no responsibility of his actions, and he is very arrogant and selfish when he says "are they no workhouses" or they "better do it to decrease the surplus population" and gradually when he meets the ghosts/spirits he starts to realise his actions and how he should be responsible, especially through the ghost of Christmas Present where he reveals the characters of Ignorance and want which symbolise the children of victorian England. and towards the end he starts to accept his responsibility a bit more and realises what the consequences will be if he doesn't change his actions.
I know these are very brief notes, which is why I need help to expand on them a bit more and talk in more detail. So I was wondering if there's anything I could say that isn't cliche.
