PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great Gatsby Thematic Response Chart: Writing about Theme

1.) There are four symbols at the top of the chart that represent different themes (deception and lies, materialism and greed, the American dream, and social class) in The Great Gatsby. During or after reading, students will record a quote in the left-hand column that connects to one or more of the themes listed at the top. Then, in the corresponding column beneath the related theme(s), students will compose a brief response detailing how their quote represents/exemplifies their selected Great Gatsby theme(s).

2.) When they finish filling out the chart, students will record thoughts in the section at the bottom of the page. This is a good opportunity for students to practice composing a good, tight paragraph.

3.) Finally, students can share quotes, thoughts, etc. from their chart during whole class discussion.

I have included directions and a two page chart/graphic organizer.
