This file contains instructions for creating a Personal Vocabulary Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck. It can easily be adapted to fit any novel. The point of the Personal Vocabulary is to have students practice looking up words they do not know instead of skipping over them. We do no old-fashioned vocabulary quizzes with the novel, but the students still get a good understanding of the vocabulary used in the novel. Also included are instructions for the writing assignments I use with the novel. Rubrics and details can be purchased. See my Of Mice and Men Writings and Journal.
