THE GRAPES OF WRATH
Define Socialism and Humanism
HW JOURNAL #2 find evidence that supports philosophical influence
AND identify language associated or said by character Jim Casey.
AND type up IN THE NEWS practice for Thursday
CLARIFICATION
No problem, sorry this is so late but I had back-to-school at Grant.
This is what is says: Define Socialism and Humanism
HW JOURNAL #2 find evidence that supports philosophical influence
AND identify language associated or said by character Jim Casey

This is what you should do: In your journal, define socialism and humanism, find/identify evidence from Grapes that supports that these two philosophies influenced Steinbeck's writing of the novel. And, link language of Jim Casey to either philosophy.

I hope this helps and that it's not too late.
