Begin character analysis in Chapter 1 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic The Great Gatsby with this unique, engaging activity that requires students to "grade" the characters in certain traits.

This activity gets the students critically thinking and requires justification with textual details. After grading each character, students will have to explain the most and least likable characters. I think discussing the likability of characters is essential early on, so students can realize that they're not necessarily supposed to like many of this novel's characters (which plays into Fitzgerald's message and social commentary).
