Use this visually stunning package of chapter-by-chapter questions covering Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck’s classic novel, to pull your students into the text and inspire them to think deeply about Steinbeck’s themes.
This packet includes six pages of student handouts with detailed questions (plot points, inference, and literary analysis) covering all six chapters from Of Mice and Men. A separate five-page detailed answer key is also included, of course. (A total of 11 pages in PDF format.)
The graphics feature casts of film and stage versions along with important visual references from the book. All of the worksheets are designed to pull students into their reading assignments, while the questions will require them to dig deeply into the text and their own minds.
In addition to working as homework assignments, the sheets can also serve as small-group or full-class discussion starters, short-answer quizzes, and/or differentiated enrichment. I like to mix-and-match the worksheets to keep things fresh as we work through our Of Mice & Men unit.
