Literature Study: (4) Of Mice and Men – Chapter 3

John Steinbeck’s classic text, ‘Of Mice and Men’ recounts the hardships and sacrifices of two migrant workers during the Great Depression. This classic tale focuses predominantly on the themes of friendship and loneliness, and the short-comings of the Great American Dream. I have taught this text many times in the last 18 years and I have used this specific resource (revised) to lead my teaching in class, as a distance learning material (Google Meet), as a homework assignment and even as a tool of revision – all have worked well for the students.

This dynamically structured and illustrated PowerPoint lesson includes: an assessment criteria slide, a starter activity, summary and analysis questions, an academic writing task, a theme tracker slide, an extension task, a homework assignment and a plenary. This is a complete resource with no additional work required from the teacher. Enjoy!

I am a frontline teacher with 12 years state school experience from inner London schools, and a further 8 years experience teaching internationally in Mexico and Spain. I am now a self-employed English tutor and pretty much a full-time Resource Author. This working life choice allows me to take care of my beautiful American wife and step-daughter, along with my own daughter from a previous relationship - we are a happy disfunctional, yet very loving, little family unit.
