Today we started with the reading check over chapter three. Then I had everyone answer today’s journal prompt:

Do you think putting Candy’s dog down was the right choice? Why or why not? Would you have made the same choice? Why or why not?

Then we discussed the important parts of chapter three-

The death of Candy’s dog

The characterization of Slim

The metaphor of silence

The fight between Curly and Lennie

Finally, I gave you a writing assignment that is due tomorrow:

Write a letter from Lennie’s perspective to Candy about the loss of his dog. Make sure to look back through the chapters we’ve read already to use the type of language that Lennie would use. Include things that Lennie would remember about the dog, but then also things that Lennie’s mind might wander to while writing this letter.

The letter should be roughly half a page.
