Purpose of Nonfiction: The people, events, places, and ideas presented in nonfiction are real, not invented. Nonfiction is narrated by an author who is a real person. It presents facts, describes true-life experiences, or discusses ideas. Nonfiction is written for a specific audience, or group of readers. In addition, it addresses a clear purpose, or reason for writing. The audience and purpose influence the type of information a writer includes. Tone, the author’s attitude toward the subject or reader, is displayed through the writer’s word choice and style.




Connection to BIG THEME/IDEA: Martin Luther King Jr fought for equality. In his attempt to fight for equality he died doing it

Timeline of Events:

Event 1 (MLA): Lennie went into Crooks room, who was a colored man, and he talked to him. At that period in time colored people and white people didn’t talk to each other and didn’t go in each other's rooms.

Relation to idea/issue: Crooks, the colored man, was treated the same as the white people by letting Lennie go into his room and talk to him. This connects to our idea of equality for all.


Event 2 (MLA): The men who worked at the farm treated George the same as everyone else, even though George was a new person there.

Relation to idea/issue: Sometimes new people are treated differently than people that have been at a place for a long time. This connects to our idea of equality for all.


Event 3 (MLA): All the men respect and have a good friendship between themselves and Candy, even though Candy can’t really work that well.

Relation to idea/issue: Sometimes older people and people who can’t work as hard as the others, are treated differently based on how they look or how they act.

Theme (connected to big idea or issue): People should treat each other the same with a positive attitude.


Evidence (MLA): The men who worked at the farm treated George the same as everyone else, even though George was a new person there.

Character/Analysis: Lennie, is very strong and hard working, but is very dumb


Evidence (MLA): When he crushes Curley's hand, because he was getting beat up and was trying to protect himself.


Connection to BIG IDEA/ISSUE: Lennie wasn’t treated equally, so he fought back and later he was treated more equally.
