Class experience

US Grade 8 - 10
Students will be able to:
     - Identify Historical References
     - Analyze Characters for Traits
     - Use Period Appropriate Language and Diction
     - Identify Elements of Plot
     - Organize Plot Points in Consecutive Order
     - Identify Theme
     - Discuss All Elements of Story Writing
     - Identify and Define Symbols of the Novel
     - Create a Timeline and Character Analysis Combination
I have taught this novel almost every year that I professionally taught. I have used this assessment every year as well because it is unique and different from the traditional assessment that students often take in an English classroom. I hope that students enjoy the powerful emotional novel of "Of Mice and Men" but be aware that it is an emotional ending that some students might find sad. Students are encouraged to talk it out with someone and with the teacher if it is something that needs to happen. I am here to discuss everything and anything that a students needs to complete the course.
Homework Offered
By nature of doing a flexible schedule course, students will be completing all work outside of a live meeting.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will choose between two final assessments: a character analysis and timeline activity showing five events where a single character significantly influences the story line and changes the course of the story or a found poem developed from significant quotes from the novel that exemplify a theme.
Grades Offered
Students will need only the book. I have a PDF version of the novel but it might be more comfortable to use a real novel as it is always easier to read that way. All other materials will be provided to students through the classroom.

Here is also a link to a copy you can purchase on Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/Mice-Men-Steinbeck-Centennial/dp/0142000671/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1592085272&sr=8-1
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The story does have an emotional ending so PLEASE make sure to investigate it ahead of time before having your student sign up for this class. I will not spoil anything here as it would give away the ending, but make sure to see what happens before deciding to have your student sign up for the class. Below is the link to the parental advisory rating for the novel for your perusal! It covers all topics such as themes of racism, violence against women, and murder.
