The Grapes of Wrath - Using Historic Photos as Literary Symbols


Recommendations for Integration:
  • This inquiry-based RWLO can be used as a supplementary / additional activity while reading John Steinbeck's classic novel The Grapes of Wrath to provide authentic examples of historic photos and documents of the same setting and time period of the novel.

    Alternatively, a similar assignment/process could be used with other literary works that students may be reading by providing them with he opportunity to browse through the American Memory collections.

  • Print-out all of the materials referenced in the Content Material section of this web site and provide sufficient copies to your students. At a minimum, each student should have their own copy of the student worksheet and could share copies of the historic photos and documents referenced in the activity.
