Product Description

Give your students these tools to encourage rich classroom discussions about Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

Chapter-by-Chapter Reading Questions and Post-Reading Assignments

Each chapter handout contains:

  • A pre-reading writing prompt
  • Four to five analysis questions
  • Three post-reading assignments (students are prompted to complete one)

Decoding Nick Carraway Graphic Organizer (Chapter 1 activity)

Who is Nick Carraway? This handout helps students organize the information Nick reveals about himself in chapter one. Perfect for a lesson on point-of-view, characterization, or narration. Instructor's notes included.

Marxist Literary Criticism

This lesson includes two graphic organizers designed to help students notice important socio-economic factors in chapters 1 - 3 of The Great Gatsby.

Through comparing and contrasting settings and character motivations, class discussions can lead to questions such as: How does the environment shape characters' ideologies? Is anyone being exploited? Instructor's notes included.

My class completes this handout after finishing chapter three. The words--"Marxist literary criticism"--do not appear on the handouts; links to websites about the literary theory are included if a teacher chooses to incorporate into the lesson.

Feminist Literary Criticism

This lesson a graphic organizer and questions to help students analyze the role of women in The Great Gatsby.

Class discussion could revolve around topics like: Is Daisy a powerless victim or a materialistic manipulator? Tom's treatment of Daisy and Myrtle reveals what gender attitudes? Instructor's notes included.

My class uses the handout after completing chapter 5, but it works for any section of the novel. The words--"Feminist literary criticism"--do not appear on the handouts; links to websites about the literary theory are included if a teacher chooses to incorporate into the lesson.
