This is a complete unit for the novel Of Mice and Men which can be taught for 9th or 10th grade. The complete 49 page unit plan includes:
-Daily Lesson Plans
-Student Packet including vocabulary, critical thinking questions for each section, literary terms, and themes/motifs
-Worksheets for the entire unit
-Final Assessment Project
-Option 5 page 5 section content based test including multiple choice, short answer, and matching
The unit was created with ELL students in mind and includes both content based materials and critical thinking skill building. Students engage in close reading of the novel, writing prompts that coincide with the content of the novel and exploration of the author. This unit consists of many possibilities for the teacher, but can be taught without deviation.
This unit has been taught by me many times in low-income schools and has always been received well by students. If resources are an issue, this unit has been designed to not require students to take the novel home.
This unit spans up to 6 weeks, but can take as little as 5 weeks depending on the needs of students. In total, the unit contains 28 days, including reading days and work days for the final assessment.
***Feedback for this unit is much appreciated!***
