Here are some of my best Gatsby resources. They include a great pre-reading research activity (the word doc of the preview file with all topics, rubrics, etc.), reading activities, a final essay assignment on the novel's motifs. There's also great stuff in here for AP classes and some creative outlet stuff.
I am getting ready to give the students the first viewing guide that you created, but I am not sure which movie version you used? Can I use the 2000 version? Does it matter? Thank you again for these excellent resources....
Hi! It's the 1974 Robert Redford - Mia Farrow version. The questions on both of the viewing guides are specific to this version. The 2000 version deviates from a book quite a bit. Also note, the first question on the worksheet comes up during the end of the opening credits, so the kids have to watch closely. (The answer is a half-eaten sandwich).
Hope this helps!
