Outline of Intercalary Chapters in The Grapes of Wrath

The dominant feature of The Grapes of Wrath is Steinbeck's interspersing of the story of the Joad family with short chapters called "intercalary chapters;" they present a generalized situation that will either become more fully realized or brought to a conclusion by the events in the succeeding narrative chapter. You and a partner will be assigned to read and report on one of these chapters.
