Is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby” one that you teach as part of the English curriculum in your school? How about incorporating an innovative and exciting new approach to your instruction, one which includes an interdisciplinary approach which integrates Language Arts, History, Music, Art & Technology?
HERE IS WHAT THE AUTHOR WANTS TO SHARE WITH YOU:
The Great Gatsby
by F. Scott Fitzgerald is an intriguing and indulgent novel to teach, as the complexity requires deep thought and a bit of an investigative flair. The payoff is tremendous for both the instructor and the student – the questions, discussions, writings, and creative process will awaken a novel that has, sadly, been reduced to a misread. Included in this instructional manual, Gatsby: Get Real!!!
, is a multiple-faceted approach wherein the instruction includes time-period and applicable poets and poems (Carl Sandburg, Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, James Weldon Johnson, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, and others).
The vocabulary has been chosen specifically as part of the clues that unlock the mysteries in this novel. Magic Squares
quizzes are used to bring a student back to the core use of language and understanding and are to be given at the end of Chapters 1-3, 4-6, and 7-9. The Magic Squares are also used to allow students to remember words in context and then reapply them to the exact context from the passage of the book in which they originally appear. The novel is translated through music and chosen for the theme, time-period, mood, or a mixture therein. A multi-tiered explanation of each chapter is dissected through Summary, Understanding,
and Extended explanation (SUE)
sections, which allows teachers of varying instructional experience levels (with this novel) to find new and exciting ways to present and teach.
Each chapter emphasizes an interdisciplinary instructional approach to learning by blending English (literature, writing, vocabulary, etc.), music, history, art, and technology. This teacher’s manual is designed from the perspective that The Great Gatsby is a novel that, when read thoughtfully and purposefully, will give great academic fulfillment through a variety of essay and discussion questions, vocabulary, and creative projects. Gatsby: Get Real!!!
will compliment any teaching style and methodology as it was written with the teacher in mind. It was written to bring insight and enjoyment to an artfully crafted novel, and it was created to invite students into an educational opportunity unlike many others that they are faced with in today’s classroom. The teacher and the student will have great success in unlocking this mystery preserved.
Chapter by chapter, the artist (Annie) has interpreted the chapters into illustrations that are rich, helpful, and full of insight for other students. She has meticulously crafted a graphical presentation (chapter by chapter) guaranteed to capture their attention through her insightful depictions of how the characters in the novel transform themselves throughout the on-going narrative. An instructional PowerPoint of her artistry is also available in our store for the teacher who wishes to include Annie’s visual analysis of the storyline to their students.
Gatsby: Get Real!!!
is just what you need to help you with your instructional delivery! Education Get Real is delighted that the author of this book has agreed to share his unique and captivating lesson plans with you on this Teachers Pay Teachers website – breaking it down to one chapter at a time.
If you were to speak to the author, without hesitation he would express his love for this novel. He brilliantly, meticulously, and knowledgeably presents “teasers” that capture the attention of students as to the meaning and symbolism hidden in Fitzgerald’s novel. He does not give them the answers – he empowers students to examine that on their own, thinking critically as they explore and interpret the what, why, how, when, and where of the storyline. They learn about the history of that time in history, the music played, and the art enjoyed. In his classroom all assignments are completed on computers and they are submitted to him via a school network – a “paperless classroom!” His situation is unique; however, all teachers of English can, without a doubt, utilize his ideas/strategies/methodologies and modify them as needed.
As a Language Arts teacher, you will find this lesson plan will totally change your way of thinking and the way in which you teach. Why wait? Place your order today and incorporate these new thought-provoking ideas and strategies in your teaching repertoire. There are nine chapters in total and the author offers the buyer two options: 1) purchase each chapter one at a time so you can purchase WHAT you need WHEN you need it OR 2) purchase the BUNDLE (located under the BUNDLES category) if you prefer to purchase the unit as a complete package.
