Of Mice and Men:  Chapter 3…what happened?

Getting into character writing activity:  ( I Shoulda Done It Myself…) Later on in the chapter, Candy expresses remorse for allowing someone else to shoot his dog. Re-write this scene (beginning on page 48), but instead of Carlson taking the dog outside, have Candy do it instead.

As Candy is leading his dog outside consider the following questions in your response:  What would be going through Candy’s mind? How would he act? What would he say? How would he do it?  Be sure to address all of these details in your version of this scene. Try to maintain the same writing style as the author.
