This all-in-one packet will help your students complete an original essay about Of Mice and Men, and it will provide them with all the structure and guidance they need. The document includes a cover page, suggested topics, a worksheet for brainstorming ideas about and developing a working thesis, a worksheet to help with gathering evidence (concrete details) from the text that they'll use to support their argument, a structured outline, and a holistic rubric. This is an excellent tool for students in both honors and regular level classes. Students who struggle will have the support they need. Students who are ready to can develop a unique and complex argument. It is flexible enough for each student's needs. I recommend printing the whole packet as one document, but you could also provide each step separately. When your students sit down to write their essays, they’ll feel prepared and confident.
