Product Description
I use this resource to check students understanding of the introduction (pages 1-10) of the novella, Of Mice and Men. This can be used in regular English classes as well as with ESL/ELL students to focus their attention the contrasting descriptions of George and Lennie at the beginning of the book. We talk about direct characterization and methods of indirect characterization beforehand. I do not reveal that Lennie is mentally challenged.
Students are asked to summarize this section after listening/reading in class, then analyze the importance of the contrast and what we learn from the characterization here. Next, they are asked to illustrate the similarities and differences of George and Lennie (and exaggerate descriptions for effect). They must label their illustration to include direct quotations from the book.
