Gr 12 Assignment

Attached is our first major task and will be a group inquiry preceding our novel study on Of Mice and Men. It is a guided inquiry, meaning I have provided you with the topic and questions to research. You may add to this as you wish. The purpose is to research and understand various issues that Steinbeck explores in his novel and to make connections to our world today.  Thursday’s class has already seen this document. Tuesday Grade 12s, please peruse the assignment. I will clarify in class on Tuesday. Please bring a device to class next day.

grade 12s

Hi everyone! My site is now working at school again! YAY! Please hand in the composition prior to our next class.

Write a coherent, unified, multi-paragraph (3 or more paragraphs) composition of at least 300 words on the topic below. In your composition, you may apply any appropriate method of development including exposition, persuasion, description, and narration.

  • In addressing the topic, consider all possibilities. You may draw support from the experiences of others or from any aspect of your life: your reading and your experiences.
  • You do not have to accept the basic premise of the topic.
  • You may use the word “I” in this composition since writing a personal anecdote is an option; however, remember this is a formal written assignment and needs to be written appropriately and edited. This is not “stream-of-conscious” writing.

Choose one of the following prompts:

 Our experiences can influence our behaviour

Role models influence our lives

Challenging circumstances lead to positive actions.
