Unfortunately, I lost the flash drive that contains my DTP on the Great Depression. I decided to do a DTP on the Great Depression as a pre-reading activity for Of Mice and Men. The historical and social context is really important to understand the novel. As I went through my presentation, students filled in notes on a handout. The presentation also included pictures of migrant farm workers during the 1930s and 1940s, so that students could connect the written information to images. The students were engaged in the presentation, I only wished that I asked them a critical thinking question at the end that asked them to make sense of the presentation and apply it to Of Mice and Men or their own lives.
