Product Description
Students not reading? Tired of the same old novel study routine? Try studying The Great Gatsby using the two-act play by Simon Levy (easily ordered from Amazon).

On a personal note, my 11th graders enjoyed acting the play and were much more engaged during this unit. I also decided to incorporate key chapter excerpts from the novel to help build background or elaborate on a key scene.

Here are the chapter excerpts that I used:

Ch. 1-East and West Egg descriptions (inserted on page 11 after Tom says East Egg.)
Ch. 2- Valley of Ashes description (inserted on very bottom of page 15 after Nick addresses the audience)
Ch. 3- Gatsby’s party description (inserted on page 20 after Nick addresses the audience)
Ch. 4- Jordan’s recap of 1917 with Gatsby & Daisy (inserted on very bottom of page 27 after Jodan says Not that mysterious)
Ch. 5.- The shirt scene (inserted on the very bottom of page 32 after Gatsby speaks)
Ch. 6- James Gatz background (inserted on page 36 after Nick says You can’t repeat the past.)
Ch. 7- Conversation between Gatsby & Daisy where Tom realizes about the affair (inserted on page 38 after Jordan says it gets crisp in the fall.)
Ch. 8- Gatsby’s death (inserted on page 52 after Gatsby says goodbye to Nick).
Ch. 9-Nick’s run in with Tom (inserted on page 53 after the end of the play)
