Product Description
This product contains short, contextualized excerpts from The Great Gatsby and Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography. An accompanying prompt asks students to think about how theme and characterization are developed in each text and to explain how F. Scott Fitzgerald modeled aspects of his novel on Benjamin Franklin's example.

This can be used along with a study of The Great Gatsby or as a stand alone exercise to meet the following standard.

See my novel study on The Great Gatsby that includes this piece.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.9 Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).
