PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bring the vivid symbolism of color to life with a this color collage project during your unit over The Great Gatsby. Students focus on one color from the novel to create a color collage. This project takes one to two class periods, depending on how much time you have. Aside from gathering a few basic materials (magazines, glue, etc.), this project is print and go!

This purchase includes an assignment description, graphic organizer, teacher notes, rubric, model collage, and four example student collages. The assignment description and graphic organizer to guide students through the project. There are two pages of detailed teachers notes with tips for how to implement this project as well as sample conclusions for each color. The rubric streamlines grading. The model collage helps get students started on the right track with the assignment. Four student examples are primarily for the teacher to get an idea of what students can come up with during this project.

This project works best for me at the end of the unit. Color references usually come up a few times throughout the unit, and this project helps pull all those tidbits together and leads students to drawing deeper conclusions about the symbolism behind Fitzgerald's use of color.

My favorite thing about this project is watching students work in groups to complete it. I put a one class period time limit on the project, giving students motivation to complete as much work as possible during the hour. Their creativity in fulfilling all the required items on the rubric always impresses me.
