Product Description
The following two-page handout or worksheet contains a crossword puzzle with passages from John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" and students fill the puzzle with the figurative language device that Steinbeck employs (e.g. similes, metaphors, personification, etc.). This side is a breeze for students. The other side, which is more challenging and requires more critical thinking, asks students to analyze how Steinbeck uses these figurative language devices. Two examples are provided. This side of the worksheet is a mini-lesson on literary analysis, integrating quotations with evidence, elaborating on one's assertions, and reviewing MLA formatting and in-text citations. These latter skills are probably too challenging for lower grades, but all students can analyze how Steinbeck uses these figures of speech and assert what they inferred when they read them.
