PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students learn how to dig deep into analyzing text with these FOUR SEPARATE CLOSE READING LESSONS to use with chapters 1, 3, 5, and 7 of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel, The Great Gatsby.

Each of the four lessons includes a student handout of a select bit of text with generous margins to allow for students to annotate the selection with their thoughts, ideas, and/or questions. After students are given 8-to-10 minutes to finish their annotations, pull the class back together to annotate a copy of the material together. I just project a copy of the student handout onto the white board and write their observations on the board, adding any of my own at the end that they may have overlooked.

Early in our studies, I model this for my students, as I annotate a selection aloud so they can “hear” the internal monologue I have in my head when I’m working through a thick slice of text. By the end of the unit, students are pulling gems out of the text all on their own. This process leads to exciting class discussions and builds those important Common Core critical analysis skills in a natural, authentic way.

Each of these lessons will take between 30-35 minutes.
