PLE – 10yEN1 – Home learning due Friday 21 March

Following today’s lesson on hierachy in Of Mice and Men, please provide your own hierarchies, putting the characters in order of their importance a) on the ranch itself and b) to the story.

An independent enquirer working at:

  • Grade D will put the characters into the order of their importance on the ranch and to the story 
  • Grade C will justify the choices you make, explaining why characters are in the position you have them in
  • Grade B will make comparisons of the charaters’ positions in the two hierarchies

    the most important people in the ranch are
    1)the boss
    2)curley
    3) Curley’s wife
    4)Carlson
    5) Slim
    6) Crooks
    7) Candy
    8) George
    9) Lennie

    the most importaNT PERSON ON THE RANCH IS THE BOSS BECAUSE HE FOUNDED THE BUISNESS giving people there jobs so that they could live the second most important person is curley because he will inherit the buisness to keep it going once he has died.

    The most important characters to the story are:
    1) Lennie
    2) George
    3) Curley
    4) Curley’s wife
    5) Carlson
    6) Slim
    7) Crooks
    8) Candy
    9) The Boss

    the most important character is lennie because he makes the storie flow there is alot of parts in the storie whaere he goes off on his own and leaves george behing like when he goes into crooks bunk house he is there for several pages in the book he also kills curleys wife so he makes the events happen in the book and then right at the end of the book george shoots him.

      Great effort, Simon, on top of a stunning comment in today’s lesson. Your comments regarding Lennie, as well as the rest of your hierarchies, has made this a grade C answer – well done!

    The most important people in my opinion are:

    1) The Boss
    2) Curley’s Wife
    3) Curley
    4) Crooks
    5) Carlson
    6) Slim
    7) George
    8) Candy
    9) Lennie

    The most important person ( keeping in mind I know nothing about the book) is the boss becuase he is the boss of everything but Curley’s wife is important to.

    1) Lennie
    2) George
    3) Curley’s Wife
    4) The Boss
    5) Crooks
    6) Slim
    7) Candy
    8) Carlson
    9) Curley

    This is becuase based on what I know the top three are the main people that the book is about and when we read it in class they are always mentioned.

    I think the most important people on the ranch are

    1) The boss
    2) Lenny
    3) Curley’s wife
    4) Curley
    5) George
    6) Carlson
    7) Slim
    8) Crooks
    9) Candy

    I think the most important person is the boss because he gives people thier jobs and somewhere to live. The second most important person is Lenny because if he was not in the book it would just be another boring book with nothing happing in it but with a character like Lenny in it, it makes all the difference.

      Thank you, Sandy. Your explanation actually relates to the two different hierarchies- importance on the ranch (that’s why the boss is at the top) and importance to the story (that’s why Lennie is so important). Can you do a separate list for each hierarchy? List the characters from Most Important to Least Important in each list. Think carefully about the choices you make; for example, is Slim less important than George on the ranch? No. Is he less important than George to the story? Yes, he definitely is.

    For the most impotentace order for the ranch…
    1) The Boss
    2) Curley
    3) Slim
    4) Carlson
    5) Candy
    6) George
    7) Lennie
    8) Crooks
    9)Curley’s Wife

    I’ve put it Into this order because, The Boss is the one who owns the ranch that’s why he is the first one I think is most important. I put Curley’s Wife at the bottom because she doesn’t have a job on the ranch so therefore is not important at all.

    The older of most important one for the book…
    1) Lenny
    2) George
    3) Slim
    4) Cruley’s Wife
    5) Candy
    6) Crooks
    7) Curley
    8) Carlson
    9) The Boss

    I think Lennie is most important in the story as without him in the book, the book would really not have a story as the only reason George and Lennie had to leave Weed is beacuse if Lennie’s character. However in the this one I’ve put The Boss last beacuse he’s not really in the story apart form when George and Lennie had to go see him about what they will be doing there, and when in one part of the book The Boss, Curley and Curley’s Wife was having tea. Also I’ve put Curley’s Wife near the top in the most importance of the book, as without her Lennie wouldn’t of got killed and the story would of ended how George and Lennie wanted it to by having there own ranch. Secondly Curley’s Wife should be at the top beacuse she is in a lot of the book.

    I think (to the ranch) the most important charecters are…

    The boss
    Curley, Slim
    Curleys wife, George, Carlson
    Lennie, Candy
    Crooks
    Ithink the most important to the ranch is the boss as he owns the establishment and has conttrol over everyone. Then Curley and Slim as Curley is the son of the boss and Slim as he is well respected within the ranch. Then Curleys wife and George and Carlson as George is a persuasive guy who is earning respect and Carlson as he has a gun and has been there for quite a while Curleys wife is also there as she has conttrol over Lennie Candy and Crooks but no one else. After them it is Lennie and Candy as Lennie can be persuaded to do anything and Candy is an old man only fit for small jobs.

    Importance to the story however goes as
    Lennie
    George Curleys wife
    Curley Candy Crooks
    Slim Curley
    Boss

    Unlike the importance to tje ranch i think Lennie is most important as he is the one who gets in to trouble and the story seems to mainly consist of him. Then George and Curleys wife as he is the one who looks after lennie and has an influence to the story, Curleys wife is there as she was the one who stirred up the action as she gets killed by lennie
    Then Crooks Candy and Curley as candy and crooks talked to lennie and told them theyd go and help for the dream ranch. Then Curley as he constantly try to mess with lennie making him a part of the story. Then Slim and Carlson as they apear in the book mostly in the background or in minor parts then the boss as he only apears once in the begining
