Product Description
This activity was a huge hit with my 11th graders... In lieu of reading every page of the end of Gatsby, we unpacked key lines in a kind of funeral ceremony for the main character. Each student got a line, translated it in his/her own words, and then came forward to read the line and the translation as a kind of "eulogy" for Gatsby. The rest of the class copied the translations on their notes sheets, and we paused throughout to discuss the key ideas. We arranged the room with desks in rows as though we were at a funeral service, and students were encouraged to wear black. Two boys, knowing that the funeral service was happening, even brought flowers to school in memory of Gatsby!
