Now that we have finished Of Mice and Men you have the opportunity to reflect on what you read and decide for yourself what you find most interesting about the book. We discussed any number of ideas in class that you might consider. The most obvious choice would be George's final decision about what to do with Lennie.Perhaps you want to address the way women are portrayed by Steinbeck. We talked about the power differential of the characters; Curley's dad, Curley, Curly's wife, Crooks, Candy, Lennie, George,etc. You could reflect on the use of animals and what they represent throughout the text. The choice is up to you. Requirements: 3 pages, brief quotes from the text, display your original thinking (plagiarism will have consequences), 12 font,double spaced.
