Today the Do Now asks why the book is called Of Mice and Men. Know this! We’ll discuss it in class but it relates back to that poem we studied called To a Mouse. If you can’t explain this, ask me before Wednesday’s test.
We will break into groups and discuss the various themes of the book. We’ll focus on innocence, dreams, the role of women, and friendship. I may add another but those four will be on the test. If you want more help on theme, visit this site!
Today I’m handing out a worksheet that covers all of the foreshadowing in the book. You’ll need to fill in the blanks by tomorrow though I’ll give you classtime today.
If we have time we’ll do a little more nonfiction reading about The Dust Bowl (I know, so exciting for a Monday).
