My students are amazing. I work in a public, inner-city high school and I teach English to a group of students who are some of the hardest working students I have had the pleasure of teaching. These students come from all walks of life and they all bring so much to the classroom. They teach me just as much as I teach them.
Being in an inner-city school, these students work with what they are given and they do not complain, rather they're grateful.
These students are thirsty for knowledge and are always keeping me on my toes, asking the most thought provoking questions and genuinely making my day that much better. I look forward, every day, to seeing what they think, say and create.
Classic novels such as Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, are so important to keep in the classroom in our inner-city schools. By having a class set of these novels, my students will be able to reference them when we are reading together in class and will be able to use them when they are writing and answering text-based questions.
Reading is so important for the success of our students and our future.
This book will prove to be useful by not only showing them a wonderful piece of literature but also gives many students a perfect novel to reference back to when they are writing long compositions on their MCAS test.
The novel has many topics that students seem to appreciate and it is a novel that always seems to have an emotional impact on the reader.
