Socratic Seminar

of mice and men socratic seminar1
Of Mice and MenSocratic Seminar
  • A Socratic Seminar is a specific type of discussion where mostly open-ended questions are given and students work together to collectively find answers.
  • It is a different type of discussion because your teacher will not say a word. Instead, students will regulate the flow of the discussion while your teacher takes notes. Points are awarded for involvement and knowledge of the subject and for aiding the flow of the discussion. Referencing specific events in the text and using quotes is important to enrich our learning experience.
  • Everyone is expected to contribute to the discussion.
question 1
Question #1

Inside Circle

  • We’ve studied 5 different types of conflict so far this term (man vs. man, nature, self, society, and fate). Identify all types, but which type conflict was most prevalent in the novel? Use a specific example from the text to support your answer.
question 2
Question #2

Outside Circle

  • John Steinbeck is a great American writer for several reasons. One reason is his excellent use of foreshadowing. What is one way that Steinbeck uses foreshadowing in the novel? How does he give us subtle hints as to what to expect in the future without giving the whole story away?
question 3
Question #3

Inside Circle

  • Candy said, “I ought to of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t out to of let no stranger shoot my dog” (Steinbeck 61). Explain the significance that this quote holds. How does the dog function on a symbolic level?
question 4
Question #4
  • Are there other uses of symbolization that stand out to you as being meaningful or powerful?

Outside Circle

question 5
Question #5
  • Discuss the role of women in the story. What roles do women play, how often do they appear, and what is the author trying to say about women in the time period?

Inside Circle

question 6
Question #6

Outside Circle

  • From the very beginning of the story it is clear that George experiences frustration because of Lennie’s actions. Why does he stick around? What does he get out of the relationship? What’s his motivation?
question 7
Question #7

Inside Circle

  • Why did George ask Candy to let him leave the barn before they found Curley’s wife? Also, how did George get to Lennie before the rest of the men?
question 8
Question #8

Outside Circle

  • Please reread the passages on page 7 and on page 99. Draw the imagery in your notebook. What do you think the water-snake(s) and stilted heron symbolize?
question 9
Question #9
  • Slim is described as having ears that “heard more than was said to them” (Steinbeck 35). What does this mean to you? Is this description of Slim justifiable and accurate throughout the novel?

Inside Circle

question 11
Question 11

Outside Circle

  • Was George a good friend to Lennie? Was Slim correct when he said “You hadda, George”?
question 13

Inside Circle

Question #13
  • Did the novel end the way you expected? If not, what did you expect would happen? More importantly, determine if Lennie had to die at the end of the book. Use examples to justify your answer. 
question 91

Outside Circle

Question #9

Inside Circle

  • Steinbeck is a master of creating a believable setting. How essential is the setting to the story? Could the story have taken place anywhere else? If so, where?
question 10

Inside Circle

Question #10
  • Everyone has dreams, but few people actually achieve them completely. In your opinion, do people dream too big? Do you people set their goals too high, and ultimately fail because their dream is unattainable?
question 111

OutsideCircle

Question #11
  • Crooks said, “A guys needs somebody – to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody. Don’t make no difference who the guy is, long’s he’s with you. I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an’ he gets sick” (Steinbeck 73). The ultimate human experience is the giving and receiving of friendship, but, sadly, this experience is lacking for many people. If having friends and being a friend is so important, why are so many people in this world lonely and “sick?”
question 12

Inside Circle

Question #12
  • What connections do you see between stereotypes, alienation, friendship, and hopes in dreams in Of Mice and Men?
question 131
Question #13
  • Draw a circle in your journal. Create a pie chart that represents what caused the dream to fail. Establish how much of the failure of the dream is George’s fault, how much is Lennie or another character, how much is due to fate, due to economic forces beyond the control of characters.
    • George’s Fault %:
    • Lennie’s Fault %:
    • Curley’s Fault %
    • Curley’s Wife’s Fault %:
    • Economic Forces %:
    • Fate %:
