Today I asked you to work in small groups:
- Discussing the significance of the three deaths we’ve encountered (CW, puppy, Candy’s dog)
- Identifying and exploring the symbols so far in the novel
- Developing Themes based on these subjects: loneliness, friendship, predjudice
I should have had “dreams” as a subject, and didn’t, SO…I’m offering it for discussion here. This will count towards your participation grade for Wednesday if you like. What quotes/passages do you see that have to do with DREAMS and based on that, what do you think Steinbeck is saying about them?
Since tomorrow is Tuesday (and a writing day), we’ll finish with 4 & 5 on Wednesday. Please finish the book for Thursday. Your final journal prompt is an open one, so you develop what you think would be most meaningful in terms of your response.
