A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. In the first assignment students compose a "want ad" in which they advertise to find a friend. This assignment pulls in the theme of friendship and the skills necessary to write a "want ad." The second assignment gives students the opportunity to express their personal ideas: students choose a hope or dream that they have for the future and make a plan they can follow to help make their dreams come true. The third assignment is to give students a chance to persuade: students pretend to be defending or prosecuting George for Lennie's murder and write their closing arguments to a jury.
There is an optional class project (Project Homeless) through which students gain first-hand knowledge of the situation of homeless people and have some part in helping to do something about this problem.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
