Product Description

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is an iconic text! Whether you have just finished reading the novel, or are planning your unit, these assignments will be engaging, meaningful, and instructive for your students.

***PLEASE NOTE: Other than the unit quiz, I have NOT been able to provide editable versions, as these handouts have been designed to be visually appealing, and engaging for students - as such, I have had to use purchased fonts and images, and due to copyright restrictions, am unable to provide editable versions. However, where possible, I have left spaces for students to fill in specific instructions (due dates, word limits etc,) to fit your purpose.***
