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

'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.

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.
