PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For this very popular project, students choose one character from The Great Gatsby and compare that character to a real life person. Using evidence of the text and research on the real life person, students create a thesis and visualization - either a Venn Diagram, poster, etc. that illustrates how the two are the same. There is an apt example of how Jay-Z is like Jay Gatsby (citation included). This activity works well with basic skills students and advanced students alike. They love to talk celebrities so this project is fun and academic as it combines knowledge of the novel with pop culture. A rubric for scoring is included.
