This lesson asks students to close read select passages to analyze the symbolism of both the eyes of T.J. Eckleburg and the colors gold/yellow. It is divided into two parts, one for each major symbol.
Students should have read most of the book, as this lesson goes through chapter 7. The book is not needed to complete this activity, as the passages are directly on the handout.
This is great to do in small groups or as an individual assignment.
