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 these specific resources (revised) to lead my teaching in class, as distance learning materials (Google Meet), as homework assignments and even as tools of revision – all have worked well for the students.
These dynamically structured and illustrated PowerPoint lessons each include: 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. These are complete resources with no additional work required from the teacher. Enjoy!
