Product Description
Getting students to engage with a book like The Great Gatsby can be a challenge. Whether you are using the novel with students for the first time or the 20th you already know that getting them hooked on the themes will be key to making sure they understand what they read.

This activity, before you even mention the book, will get students thinking about the ideas they are about to encounter. You can use these questions as journal prompts in the weeks leading up to the novel, but I much prefer the activity described in this lesson plan that I call Question Circles.

As I'm sure you know, reading a novel like The Great Gatsby meets many of the Common Core standards. This lesson directly addresses RL.11-12.2, and will lead you to further discussions as you work through the novel on standards RL.11-12.5, and RL.11-12.7.

The downloaded document also includes a link to an online presentation of the questions to make your class discussion even easier.

Enjoy,
