This POWERPOINT is an introduction to the Valley of Ashes (where George and Myrtle Wilson reside with the rest of society that has not achieved the American Dream) and Manhattan's Plaza Hotel (where the "winners of the world" stay). Photos of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg are also included.
All of this gives students who don't have experiences in New York an picture of the setting of this chapter as well as an idea of the dispair of life in poverty compared to the oppulence and excessive wealth just across the bridge.
this presentation sparks a lot of questions and discussion amoung students!!!!
