An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. Laborers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him.

In this State Standards-aligned Literature Kit™, we divide the novel by chapters or sections and feature reading comprehension and vocabulary questions. In every section, we include Before You Read and After You Read questions. The Before You Read activities prepare students for reading by setting a purpose for reading. They stimulate background knowledge and experience, and guide students to make connections between what they know and what they will learn. The After You Read activities check students' comprehension and extend their learning. Students are asked to give thoughtful consideration of the text through creative and evaluative short-answer questions and journal prompts. Also included are writing tasks, graphic organizers, comprehension quiz, test prep, word search, and crossword to further develop students' critical thinking and writing skills, and analysis of the text. About the Novel: Of Mice and Men is the controversial novella by John Steinbeck that follows two migrant workers as they look for work during the Great Depression. Located in California, ranch workers George Milton and Lennie Small move on to look for work. George is lean and intelligent, while Lennie is large and strong. The pair share a dream of one day owning their own land. Lennie's part of the dream is to be able to touch soft rabbits, as he likes to touch soft things. George and Lennie find themselves on a ranch with Candy, an old-aged ranch hand and Slim. Candy offers to give $350 for George and Lennie to buy their land if Candy can live with them. Unfortunate events at the ranch make sure that dream never takes place. Of Mice and Men is a powerful story of friendship, survival and prejudice. All of our content is aligned to your State Standards and are written to Bloom's Taxonomy.

Drawing from observations of discussion in 24 different classrooms, this book will provide preservice and inservice teachers at the middle and school levels with the motivation and knowledge to use discussion to foster student comprehension of content area text assignments. The first chapter examines the distinctions between discussion and recitation, and redefines major issues related to content area discussion in light of recent research and school reform reports. The second chapter establishes a basis for the premise that discussion is important to the development of reading comprehension, illustrating those skills that enrich or refine students' understanding of text. The third chapter uses portions of transcripts from videotaped content class discussions to illustrate how classroom context influences discussion practices. Alternatives to teacher dominated discussions are described, and guidelines are provided for establishing the rights and responsibilities of critical readers. The fourth chapter demonstrates how to plan for classroom discussion of assigned material, describing five aspects of the planning process. The fifth chapter presents discussion strategies that help students master the content, examine more than one side of the issue, and evaluate alternative solutions to a text based problem, while the sixth chapter analyzes one content area teacher's implementation of a preplanned discussion. Finally, the seventh chapter describes two procedures for informally evaluating classroom discussion used to promote reading comprehension. References follow each chapter. (HTH)
