This 2 day lesson is a great introduction to any of Fitzgerald's works, but especially The Great Gatsby. Instead of lecturing in front of the room while students doze off and day dream, this lesson engages the students and leaves them responsible for their own learning.
F. Scott Fitzgerald Research Questions
Students will quickly learn about Fitzgerald's background, including his childhood and marriage to Zelda, and will also be able to make connections to his texts (like The Great Gatsby) and the time period he grew up in.
This puts the learning in the students' hands and keeps them interested in his life!
