Yesterday my english class recieved our GCSE controlled assessment question for Of mice and men. Our exam board is OCR and the question given was : "Explore some of the ways in which Steinbeck makes violence so important in the novel"

The question is very specific and asks us to Explore the theme of violence. Right now im trying to draft bullet points and key ideas so i can plan how im going to structure the main essay.

Any one doing the same, or possible gone through it before, please let me know! im doing it and really could do with help!


thank you

I don't remember doing Of Mice and Men that well since 2 years ago, but the violence portrayed in the novel is to do with foreshadowing. It leads up to the death of Curly's wife.

Make sure to refer to "Chapter" so and so to show the examiners you understand it's a novel and not a drama or whatever.

Talk about different interpretations like from different historical periods and men or women too, and incorporate how the audience may react to a certain character or action.

Hope it helps, good luck!

I'm doing this question. I've already prepared for it. Just remember to do point, evidence, explanation, zoom.
