I have been set homework from my English teacher to answer this question in the "Of Mice and Men" book by John Steinbeck.
Imagine that you are a reporter for the local newspaper in Soledad where Carlson has taken Curley to have his broken hand treated, following his fight with Lennie. You manage to get Curley to tell you the real reason of how his hand got smashed.
Using ICT if possible, write an article on the incident based on your interviews with Curley and Carlson. Explain:
- how the fight started
- who was to blame
- what Curley's and Carlson's impressions are of Lennie
- what, if any, action should be taken against him.
I have read this part of the book and have watched the whole movie in class, so I understand the situation, but need help on writing as a reporter, as I have not written a newspaper article before and am not sure how to.
Any help much appreciated.
