Of Mice and Men Revision Guide (Section 4)


Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Section 4

P: Steinbeck describes how Crooks, the physically disabled negro stable buck, is a permanent member of the community on the ranch:

E: Crooks could leave his things about, and being a stable buck and a cripple he was more permanent than the other men, and he has accumulated more possessions than he could carry on his back.

E: There is a certain irony here because Crooks is physical disabled having been injured by a horse as a child. He therefore would be unable to carry many possessions on his back and shows that he, like the other workers on the ranch, are extremely poor. However, Crooks enjoys a modicum of respect on the ranch because of the permanence of his job. This is to be compared with the itinerant workers who are given short-term contracts.

Saved By The Teacher Revision Notes  based on the PEE code (Point, Evidence, Explanation) are unique and unlike any other revision guides on the market because students and their parents can systematically track through the full text using a series of colour-coded buttons to help map plot, character development, themes, historical context and use of language.

Experienced teacher Sarah Haggar Batten has tested the Saved By The Revision Notes over many years and has gathered much evidence to suggest that revising texts in conjunction with PEE Guides help improve results by at least one grade.

These comprehensive revision notes provide the voice of a personal home tutor and equate to approximately 12 hours of expensive personal tutoring. They can also be used as part of the on-going revision process and can be revisited several times. At the end of the revision process students can lay down their texts and rely on the notes to support last minute revision.

Sarah Haggar Batten is happy to provide parents, carers and students with further support and guidance via email in the first instance:
