The activities and ideas in this pack will help students develop a close understanding of the text, explore its social, cultural and historical contexts, consider Steinbeck’s ideas and perspectives, and analyse his use of language and structure.

‘There’s a strong focus on the themes, characters and life in 1930s America in this pack, with plenty of support for students developing their own critical interpretation. There are some great contextual images of the Dust Bowl and documentary-style videos too. It’s a short but powerful novel so the approaches are suitable for KS3 students as well as KS4, and there’s something for all abilities.’

Helen Stacey, writer

I teach English to a wide range of abilities in mixed year groups in a PRU - this resource is gold dust. I will be able to cherry pick and differentiate resources, tasks and worksheets from one place. Thank you for such a comprehensive resource.

'Of Mice and Men' is taught in Year 9 and we have a fairly comprehensive SOL for the text. However, I am very sure that I will be able to use some of the resources you have. For a start I like the Images of the Dust Bowl and the Vegetation and the river - that gives enormous credence to the text as we read it, it will be useful for them to see the images of the setting. Henceforth I will write in when I do the text with my Year 9s and use some of your resources. Thank you for your help and guidance.

Just looking for some new ideas to freshen up approaches. Also mindful that we need to prepare students for the literature exam.
