Product Description
This lesson is a great way to expose students to close reading strategies without having to read an entire novel! After reading each excerpt, students write a brief analysis of the text citing evidence from the passage to answer the question(s) for each passage.

If you are reading the entire work, these excerpts highlight key points in chapter one as readers are introduced to George and Lennie.

This is a great way for students to work in groups or for small group instruction as the questions and passages range in difficulty and length. Since this was the first activity I created like this, I modeled how to annotate the passage and answered the first question with the class, and with each question, I encouraged even more student participation.

Steinbeck, John. Of Mice and Men. New York: Penguin Books, 1993.
