Of Mice & Men Pre-reading Activity - Video stations

Of Mice & Men Pre-reading Activity - Video stations
Product Description
Students rotate to 5 video-viewing stations to obtain background knowledge on various topics which pertain to Of Mice & Men:
* The Great Depression
* John Steinbeck
* The Dust Bowl & California Migration
* Cain and Abel + Dedication page for East of Eden
* Steinbeck's Nobel Prize Speech

This activity is designed to work in rotations in which students guide each other into a broader understanding using higher order thinking questions.

I used this lesson for a Compass Evaluation and received a Highly Effective Ranking as a result.

Kit includes 5 videos on the above mentioned topics, 4 higher order thinking questions for each topic, folder/group markers covers, a two-sided student answer sheet, and PowerPoint presentation with working timers.
