End OMAM and Midterm
Before we could start our midterm, we needed to finish Of Mice and Men. It was heartbreaking to read, but you all made it through the tragic ending and formed a realization that the ending was exactly as it had to be. George was left without any other option. Deeply sad.
After finishing the novel, we wrote a total of three Double Entry Journals. We wrote two Cultural Context entries and one Author's Point of View entry. For this midterm, we used a bank of quotations drawn from Of Mice and Men. I was excited by the connections and higher-level thinking you displayed in the entries I've read so far.
