Today we finished reading chapter one in Of Mice and Men and then took a reading check to see what you remembered from the chapter. After the reading check we discussed chapter one noting that George feels a sense of duty when looking after Lennie, and how Steinbeck makes many comparisons of Lennie to an animal. After our discussion we began reading chapter two.

Journal prompt:

  • What is Lennie compared to throughout chapter one? (Hint, bear and dog.)
  • Why do you think the author makes that comparison?
  • Why do you think George sticks with Lennie?
