My lovely 2E English class have just finished reading & studying John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice & Men”. We had discussed on many occasions the theme of loneliness in the novel & how all characters are affected. I divided the class up into groups where they had to plan a paragraph for homework on a particular character or aspect of the novel and how loneliness is depicted.
Each group had to perfect their paragraph, selecting the best points each group member had come up with. Finally they put forward their best combined effort. These paragraphs were presented to the class and together they are a thorough account of this important theme. Hopefully this piece of work will be a helpful tool for revision before the Christmas exams and beyond.
