Product Description
This engaging and interesting lesson aims to improve students' knowledge of the main themes (Dreams and Loneliness) in John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. It also aims to build their skills in retrieving information from texts, understanding the writer's ideas and opinions, and making precise and confident interpretations about texts.

The lesson uses a range of tasks, that require students to use their visual and interactive skills. It follows this learning journey:
- Understanding what dreams and loneliness are, and how we each experience them;
- Defining themes and understanding how writers use them;
- Understanding how and why themes are used in other famous texts;
- Retrieving evidence from the text to demonstrate where the characters experience dreams and loneliness;
- Analysing how the themes are used to help get across John Steinbeck's ideas about 1930s America;
- Evaluating each others' analytical attempts.

The resource includes a comprehensive and visually engaging PowerPoint presentation, a worksheet for recording the retrieved quotations, a helpful template for the main task, and a lesson plan/ teacher guidance sheet.
