This webquest over John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" is designed to be used as an introduction to the major concepts of the novel. It directs students to pre-approved websites and asks them to find the answers to specific questions on topics relevant to the novel's historic context. Students can complete it either individually or in pairs. Topics include: the life of John Steinbeck, the Great Depression, the New Deal, the Dust Bowl, migrant workers, and mental retardation.
