This includes vocabulary activities and comprehension and analysis questions for John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men.
The Word document contains the Student Guide for Chapter 1.
It asks the students to locate 5 vocabulary words within the text, provide an original definition using context clues, and then select the best of two dictionary definitions.
There are 8 comprehension and 6 analysis questions for the students to answer, including questions about imagery, characterization and foreshadowing.
The Excel document contains the five vocabulary words, their definitions, and example sentences referring to each vocabulary word (but not using it). I used this list to create a Quizlet list; you could do the same, or simply put the terms on index cards.
The Powerpoint file has the vocabulary definitions and definitions for the literary terms required to complete the questions for the chapter.
I have used these files to create an essentially independent unit using Google Classroom. There is an audiobook version available on Youtube which I have shared with my students who prefer listening to the text.
I am using the paperback, 1993 Penguin version, ISBN 978-0-14-017739-8.
