Eng 12: OMAM Ch 1&2

Ideas to think about in Chapters 1-4:

Steinbeck explores certain issues in his novel including

  • power versus powerlessness (Ch 1&2 for sure!)
  • the individual versus the community
  • loneliness
  • racism, and discrimination.

Begin making notes on the following issues mentioned in the first 4 chapters of the novel. You will have an opportunity to add to this as we continue to read the novel. These ideas can be used for your dialectical journal (To be discussed soon!).

Homework: After considering the above, complete the Chart about Curley’s Wife (see me for more detail if necessary. Read Chapter 3 for next class.
