‘Of Mice and Men’ 19th – 22nd October
In English this week we focused on:
- Reading chapter/episode 5 of the text
- Identifying the clues that Steinbeck gives us in the novella that foreshadow the death of Curley’s wife
- Curley’s wife: her background, home life and her loneliness
- The impact on the reader of learning her life story shortly before her death.
- How Steinbeck uses language (verbs, adverbs and adjectives), imagery and sentence structure to create atmosphere and tension.
