  • After reading the novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Ms. Borkholder’s English II classes spent time in Mrs. Bippus’s Level 5 special ed classroom.  The purpose was to show students how similar they are to each other, even though they may look very different on the outside. This was a theme explored in the novel.  The students did various activities together like putting puzzles together, a coloring/following directions activity, and playing games.  The sophomores came back with a new, positive perspective on those who are different from themselves.
