This bundle includes materials for Unit 4 of the English 3 - Identity, Resistance, and the American Dream course. It contains a set of primary readings, a reading-response packet, supplemental readings, and a minute-by-minute pacing guide for days 36-45 of the course.
This unit challenges students to analyze the Roaring '20s and Great Depression through the lens of one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most well-renowned stories, "Babylon Revisited."
The unit focuses on the following three thematic questions:
• Is it possible to regain one’s innocence after making a lot of mistakes?
• Which lifestyle is better, living without a care in the world or thinking carefully about one’s decisions and their impact on others and the future?
• Why do people sometimes drink, party, and use up their money on momentary pleasures?
