This suite of learning tasks is designed to reinforce and stimulate learning through activity. It is a set of ready-to-go worksheets/tasks for use with The Grapes of Wrath novel. The inclusion of different types of activities is a ploy to appeal to students' different learning styles, and to cater for students of mixed abilities.
