Product Description
Ever wonder where John Steinbeck got the title for his famous novel, "Of Mice and Men"? It comes from Robert Burns' poem "To A Mouse," published in 1785, which contains the line: "The best laid schemes of mice and men go often askew."

This product contains copies of Burns' poem in both its original Scottish and a more modern English translation. It also includes notes for teaching the poem, including a basic scan of each stanza, details on multiple themes, and ties to the novel. I have taught this poem in conjunction with "Of Mice and Men" several times, and my students have always enjoyed learning about Steinbeck's inspiration.

This product and more are also available as part of my "Of Mice and Men activities bundle."
