Learning Target I can analyze how the decisions the author made regarding the order of events impacted the story. This means I can compare and contrast events that occurred at the beginning and at the end of the novel.
What happens to Lennie’s puppy? How does Lennie feel about it? Is this the first time Lennie has accidentally killed something? Explain.
Why does Curley’s wife talk to Lennie in the barn? How is the conversation similar to when Crooks talked to him?
Why does Curley’s wife let Lennie pat her hair? Why does she end up screaming? How is this like what happened to Lennie before?
Who stays with Curley’s wife as the others go off in pursuit of Lennie? When Candy is left the barn with Curley’s wife, he cries. Explain why is he so upset.
What scene of death does Steinbeck describe in the beginning of Chapter Six? How is the description of the snake’s death like the description of Lennie’s violence against Curley and against his wife?
What two imaginary visitors does Lennie have while sitting on the river bank? What does his second visitor tell Lennie that recalls an earlier conversation that Lennie had with Crooks?
How does George distract Lennie while he takes out the gun? Where did the gun come from? How is the killing of Lennie like the killing of Candy’s dog?
What lie does George tell about the way Lennie dies? What evidence is there that Slim understands what had really happened on the riverbank? How can you tell that Slim understands how George is feeling? How does he offer comfort to George?
