Of Mice and Men Interactive Notebook : Characterization
This interactive notebook project focuses on close analysis of the cast of characters in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. Your students will analyze character development; the relationships between the characters; their dialogue, motivations, and actions--and the resulting consequences. As they read, they will create an interactive notebook strategically designed for students at the secondary level with what middle and high school teachers have asked for—more writing, more close reading, deeper analysis, and less cutting and pasting than INB’s for younger students.
FEATURES OF THIS RESOURCE
Everything you’ll need is included with the resource (including the link to a letter written by Steinbeck to Miss Claire Luce, the actress who played Curley’s wife on Broadway.)
Resource Guide: 11 pages of helpful information for you:
Rubric—Easy to use, the rubric is ready to print and distribute when you introduce the activity, so students know exactly what you expect them to do and how their INB will be assessed.
13 Base pages—There are 13 base pages—two pages per chapter—and one that follows the end of the novella. Base pages are the pages on which students adhere their cut outs, write their responses to questions, and complete tasks. To limit the amount of cutting and pasting—a frequent Interactive Notebook teacher request—some of the tasks your students will be tackling are printed directly on the base pages themselves and can be completed without any cutting or pasting at all. Base pages include guides for placement of the cut out pieces, making assembling the pages easy and allowing students to work independently or cooperatively with their classmates. Task instructions are included on either the base pages or on the cut out pieces themselves so that they remain intact and are not cut off and thrown away.
17 Cut Out Pages—These pages contain the Cut Outs that will be adhered to the base pages. All Cut Out pages are clearly labeled and cutting instructions are included on the page. Each Cut Out is labeled with a (tiny) chapter number, usually in the bottom right corner of the Cut Out to help students easily keep track of their pieces.
