Mrs. Bhan’s Grade 8 English Students Rewriting Of Mice and Men, Creating Photo Essays

Students in Mrs. Bhan’s grade 8 English classes have started an exciting new project to conclude their exploration of Of Mice and Men. Inspired by Great Depression photojournalism, this project requires boys to rewrite the ending of the story from the perspective of one of the main characters.  Students then will create a narrated photo essay depicting this ending from their chosen character’s perspective. To populate their essay, students have access to an incredible, large database of Depression-era photos compiled by Yale University.

Stay tuned for updates on this project!
