This lesson is designed to be taught after reading Chapter 1. Students research John Steinbeck’s life through a variety of sources and create a presentation using a detailed success criteria.
The research points to key themes that we see within the novel e.g. the importance of dreams, poverty etc. Students then reflect on which themes they can already identify from chapter 1 and what in Steinbeck’s life may have influences these themes.
Lesson is fully differentiated and has been planned for a predominantly EAL class with students ranging from a grade 2-9. The lesson has been taught remotely.
Lesson is designed for students with 1-to-1 devices as all of our students have individual iPads. Alternatively, research on Steinbeck could be printed.
