To introduce my students to Steinbeck prior to reading "The Grapes of Wrath" I have the students complete this mini-assignment. Included is a biography handout about Steinbeck and a reading comprehension worksheet that the students have to complete while reading. It is a simple activity, but it provides the students with some good background on Steinbeck using a different approach rather than lecture.
