*We will continue to read our novel “Takedown”.
Our new novel: “Of Mice and Men”. This will not be a read aloud. This will be a ‘Novel Study’…so you will have work, assignments and a test.
-Give students a piece of blank paper. Read aloud Chapter 1
-Students are to listen to the description of the setting and try to picture what the setting of the novel may be like. They are to draw a rough sketch of what they have imagined.
-Steinbeck uses different techniques in his writing/descriptions –comparison (simile, metaphor, personification etc) detail, and appealing to the senses.
