Product Description

Every word is important! Each was meticulously chosen! Everything is symbolic! This is what we tell our students when we begin our Gatsby unit. This activity helps them see that we are not kidding!

This activity consists of 51 questions to encourage critical close reading of

Chapter 1 of Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

I assign this activity to students to emphasize the importance of their close reading and intelligent and intuitive consideration of the text.

The questions require readers to speculate, characterize, identify allusions and symbols, and discuss the author's effectiveness.

The font is clear.

There is space provided for students' responses (my kids demand this!)

There are 4 simple graphics.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource!
