Honestly, they're both really amazing books. They both have really good points, plots, and values to bring up. If you have the option/space in your curriculum, I'd recommend both.

If not, I enjoyed Of Mice and Men just a bit more. emoticon

How in the world can you choose?? They're both so excellent!

I know, that's so helpful. Sorry 'bout that!

Another vote for To Kill a Mockingbird. I had to read both in 10th grade, and I couldn't put Mockingbird down (I got in trouble for reading it during other classes!), whereas I didn't care much for Of Mice and Men. If I had to choose which one to read again, I would choose Mockingbird.

@ Omender, it's for their GCSE, which is a certificicate of education in various subjects (for those of you in countries where you don't do them) They just need to study a text from a different culture, which for us in the UK is American Literature. So neither books messages really go better with the final objective, which is to analyse the lanaguage of the book. I love both and would teach both if I could, and I really have issues choosing between the both.

PS I assume 9th grade is 15 year olds in the US, as that is the age of the students I teach.

Both are really amazing but for 9th grade, I would go for To Kill A Mockingbird. The themes and lessons of To Kill A Mockingbird are more positive and attainable to younger readers.

My daughter and my favorite book are Mockingbird. She had to read both and didn't like Mice and Men.

What are the objectives of the unit and which book better gets those across to the students? Which do you like better and why?

And I suppose Mice and Men is Of Mice and Men. Both are great books by American literary standards. Personally, I really enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird when I read it.

If you are refering to "To Kill A Mockingbird," I like that one better.

Next term I have to teach one of these texts to my year 10 class (I think to the USA, that's 9th Grade?) I can't decide which one,so I'm just being really unprofessional.

Which book do you enjoy more?
