Product Description
This product consists of a PowerPoint intended to be used as a prereading activity to provide the historical context of Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. This prereading PPT contains an overview of the following topics:

*The Great Depression
*The Dust Bowl
*Migrant Workers
*Treatment of the Mentally Handicapped

This PPT engages students by requiring students to answer 10 questions reflecting on the information presented in the PPT. In addition, each slide contains images and/or actual pictures specifically taken during that time period for visual learners. Furthermore, for the "Migrant Workers" topic, students will analyze a song depicting the life of a migrant worker. In the slide, there is a link to the audio of the song for you to play in the background while students analyze the lyrics on the slide.

*Since the majority of the 10 questions asked throughout the PPT are opinion, we went over each questions after students had time to respond. This ensured that students were attentive during the lesson.
