This is a reading guide I made for my students for when they had a sub.
a) prediction concerning the title
b) guided reading questions to be answered while reading covering the following skills (connotation, symbolism, foreshadowing, direct/indirect characterization)
c) a plot diagram for them to fill out
d) two short answers with missing part that they must complete
e) a box where they have to pull quotes in order to decide on a tone
There are two references to Of Mice and Men that could be whited out before copying. I expect this will take students about an hour to completely finish if they work diligently.
