All Boys, All Blogged: October 9, 2014

Focus: How does the film version of Of Mice and Men change or strengthen our interpretation of the novel? 

Please bring home the letter on parent-teacher conferences and make sure your parents understand that I will only be at conferences on Wednesday night.

1. Warming up with a quick mini lesson on colons and semicolons

2. Enjoying and analyzing the film version of Of Mice and Men (while I FINALLY give you credit for your annotations and reading journals for Chapters 4-6)

As you watch, please include a few notes on the following:

  • What does the film add that wasn't in the book?
  • What does the film delete that was in the book?

  • Why do you think the film made these changes?  What do you think of them?

3. Wrapping up with a quick thesis:

The film version of Of Mice and Men changes _____________ by _____________ in order to illustrate that _________________.
