Originally delivered to a weak KS4 class, this lesson acts as revision on the themes in 'Of Mice and Men'. Checking understanding of what a theme is, the lesson identifies the themes in the novel, leading to group work where students find evidence of their allocated theme.
Whilst the plenary suggests class feedback, this could be extended for more able students, requiring them to answer a question on one of the selected themes. This task could also be used as a speaking and listening assessment opportunity.
