PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is one of my favorites. It can be used to teach diction, connotation, or just the value of having a broad vocabulary. I think it works best when students don't realize the paragraph they are working with comes from THE GREAT GATSBY. At the end of this activity, students realize how poetic Fitzgerald really was...and most of them realize how poor their vocabulary really is. It is a quick way to teach the value of knowing and understanding many words and the way good writers utilize them.
