This unit for John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men consists of 3 quizzes, one for each 2 chapters, a list of discussion questions, and a final test. The quizzes are made up of categorizing, sentence completions, and short answer questions to give students practice in presenting content in different ways, thus using higher-level thinking skills and more advanced written expression. The discussion questions are excellent practice for standardized writing tests and for essays. The test combines all the aforementioned formats for questioning, plus a section of matching items. Reading, then quizzing, then discussing, then taking a final evaluation is an organized approach to English. Keys are provided for all 3 quizzes and the test.
