Product Description
This complete unit of study focuses on John Steinbeck's use of realism in OF MICE AND MEN and provides the optional plans for including one story from Steinbeck's THE RED PONY in this investigation. These 13 pages of materials include the following documents to walk students through the writing process for this essay of literary analysis: a 2-page overview of the assignment, including the prompt itself, a definition of realism, requirements for the essay, and explanation of the accompanying dialectical quotation journal with sample passages and commentary; an alternate form of the same assignment for use if beginning the unit with an in-class activity drawing on "The Great Mountains" from Steinbeck's The Red Pony; a 1-page list of response and discussion questions to go along with reading of "The Great Mountains"; a 2-page handout demonstrating effective methods for introducing, citing, and analyzing direct quotations in this essay; a 1-page handout illustrating the basic steps in developing an argument in this essay, demonstrated by a sample from a model essay; a 2-page writing activity requiring students to work on concise revisions in their writing by practicing on sample passages about Steinbeck's novel; a 2-page student evaluation form for in-class peer assessment of the preliminary draft; and a 1-page teacher evaluation form for summative assessment of the essay's final draft.
