Shelby teaches 9th grade Social Studies at a small high school in the rural plains of Kansas. Most of her students are farm kids who will end up working their parents’ farms for the duration of their time in Kansas. In order to make use of the abundant knowledge related to farming and farm equipment, Shelby decides to read Of Mice and Men with her students. Each day in class, she and her students read one chapter of the book and she wants to assign them evening homework that will follow up on the chapter. Once they are finished reading, they will be writing a five paragraph essay that focuses on one character from the book and how they change over the course of the text. For their final essay, students will be required to use quotes from the text as support for their paragraphs

Suggest a nightly assignment that Shelby can give to her students that will reinforce the day’s reading but also help them in preparing for the final essay. What can Shelby do on a daily basis to confirm that all students are keeping up with their homework? How might she enlist the help of parents in keeping students on track?
