PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Don't you just LOVE the painfully awkward scene in which Gatsby and Daisy reunite after 5 long years in Chapter 5 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby? I do, and my students do too, because we closely read the heck out of this scene in order to cringe at every last bit of awkwardness (and analyze it all, too). Gatsby's such a poor old sport as he tries to reconnect with Daisy; he awkwardly forces laughter, nearly knocks over Nick's clock, and runs into the kitchen after Nick like he's some schoolboy afraid to be alone with his crush. It's pitiful, precious, and just plain hilarious!

But we don't stop at the standard close read. We take this gem of a scene even further by rewriting it from either Daisy's or Gatsby's point of view. Then, we discuss how the change in narration affects the story and why Nick is a good fit for narrator. Teacher side-note: The scene rewrites are actually FUN to read and grade. :)

Enjoy this scene as much as my students and I do by purchasing this affordable product, which includes a 2-page close read and a half-page rewrite assignment sheet (complete with 2 questions about the change in narration).
