For students, English is mandatory; for me, it's a passion. Driven to unlock in my students the joy I find in English language and literature, I strive to make interesting lessons based on topics students tell me they love, and throw as much creativity into the mix as I can to stave off boredom for everyone.
This PowerPoint contains a preparatory assessment on the character of Candy in 'Of Mice and Men.' Students are shown what they will work towards, and then the class is structured to help them get there. Mainly, the focus is on close reading, being able to collect useful and relevant quotes, inference, and writing simple PEE paragraphs. The handout mentioned in the PPT is also included.
