This Great Gatsby Unit includes . . .
--Gatsby Vocabulary. This is a very, very thorough set of vocabulary materials. Students begin by locating the words in that text itself. They then match the words to definitions. The sets of vocabulary materials are divided into three sections, each section covering three chapters of the novel. There is a vocabulary test for each section. The test appears in two versions for alternate row distribution. Answers are provided for the vocabulary worksheets and the vocabulary tests.
--Gatsby Questions. There is one set of questions covering chapters 1-3, another for chapters 4-6, and another for chapters 7-9. There are 107 questions altogether, with answers for each. These questions are designed to be open-book, post-reading questions. In other words, after students have already read the novel (and likely taken one or more tests on their reading), they can now go back into the novel--using this set of questions--and analyze the novel more deeply. There is also a post-reading test that can be given at the conclusion of the post-reading questions. This set of materials includes page numbers that align with the Scribner paperback. If an alternatively paginated text is used, the page numbers would need to be changed.
--Gatsby Short-Answer Quizzes. This set of quizzes divides the novel into seventeen sections, thus encouraging a closer reading (and perhaps a Sparknotes circumventing) reading. The same seventeen quizzes come in two alternate versions: one is designed to be written on; the other is designed to be done on separate paper. Use the Gatsby Reading Schedule to schedule your seventeen quiz dates. This set of materials includes page numbers that align with the Scribner paperback. If an alternatively paginated text is used, the page numbers would need to be changed.
--Gatsby Multiple-Choice Tests. Three tests, covering chapters 1-3, chapters 4-6, and chapters 7-9. Eighty-four questions altogether. Answer keys are included.
--Gatsby Movie Tests and Quizzes. These materials are designed to accompany the Robert Redford film. Contains character-matching quizzes: five quizzes, each covering a fifth of the movie. Also contains a scantronable character-matching test covering the entire movie, in two versions. Answers are included.
--Great Books: Gatsby. A 10-question short-answer quiz for the Gatsby Great Books film--a part of the A&E Great Books series. An answer key is included.
--Winter Dreams. "Winter Dreams" is considered to be the sketch that paved the way for The Great Gatsby. Includes the text, a quiz on the text, and answers to the quiz.
