Product Description
Set includes 3 mini-extension activities.

These activities are simplistic, yet each adds rich connections to literature and author study.

• Cain & Abel activity. Connect the question "am I my brother's keeper?" to George Milton. This activity includes a short background on the biblical story of Cain and Abel as well as an exit slip. I find it best to introduce this activity at the conclusion of the story.

• John Steinbeck's dedication to East of Eden is a beautifully written and touching gesture. I left this activity open to interpretation. You could connect Steinbeck's writing style, create a writing prompt on the power of non-materialistic gestures, metaphors, or even to connect the story of Cain & Abel to Steinbeck's writing (handout includes background of East of Eden as well as details on allusions).

• Film analysis.. Rather than have a bland and meaningless conversation on differences between the novella and the 2003 film version of the story, I give students options that open up conversations worth having. These options may include how/why a character was portrayed differently or how certain moments were made more (or less) emotional. I have students write their analysis for a test grade.
