GREAT GATSBY – Chapter 1: “The White Chapter” ELA Teacher Lesson Plan of the Great Gatsby is the first chapter of this outstanding GATSBY: GET REAL!!! manual written by a highly respected ELA teacher in Colorado. Each chapter is only a part of the complete written works of this author - all parts are sequential. In order to fully appreciate and utilize the author's lesson plans, we highly suggest that our customers consider purchasing the parts starting with chapter one or buy the whole manual at once. The author is sharing his personally-developed lesson plans, ideas, experience, and expertise with English teachers throughout the nation to benefit students when they study this highly acclaimed novel "The Great Gatsby" by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This novel is based on the 1920's culture on Long Island in New York; therefore, the author has written this manual from an interdisciplinary perspective to bring it alive in the minds of students. He makes these connections by teaching about this historical era from these secondary perspectives/disciplines: English/Language Arts, History, Music, Art, and Music.
In Chapter 1, the author introduces the characters of the novel. The students get to know the characters that will be woven into the intricate “tangle” in which they find one another throughout the rest of the chapters. The students will also become acquainted with The Eggs, both East and West. East Egg is where the richest of the rich live (geographically speaking). Even someone living away from the water or peninsula at the tip of the East Egg has more social value through their wealth than anyone living anywhere (geographically) on the West Egg. The West Egg is composed of prominent and wealthy people, but during this time period they were considered “new money” or simply new to the society of the people of the East Egg who have been building upon and socially spending and trading for generations.
