PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Created with Microsoft Word 2007 (editable)
After reading Chapter 5 of The Great Gatsby, I have students complete this creative writing activity. Because Nick, our reliable narrator, grants Jay and Daisy some privacy during their reunion, we don’t know what goes on. What happened? What was said? Did they make plans? Did they kiss? Students imagine that they are a narrator who is privy to the reunion of Jay and Daisy. They compose the scene that occurs while Nick roams around in the back yard and admires Gatsby’s mansion. They are required to include the following elements as listed on the assignment:
 Dialogue --- Remember, when a new speaker speaks, start a new paragraph.
 Sensory Description --- What can the reader or the characters see, hear, taste,
smell, and feel?
 Figurative Language --- Include one of each: alliteration, simile, personification.
 Symbolism --- Of course, include two instances of color symbolism.
 Plot --- A secret! Create a secret revealed by one of the characters or an act committed during the rendezvous. Remain consistent with the characterization and the plot that Fitzgerald has established to this point.
A scoring rubric is included. Appropriate graphics and clear font. Thank you for your consideration. Please have a look at the other Gatsby activities in my store, including individual chapter activities, a project examining the color symbolism and PowerPoints to introduce the Roaring 20’s and Gatsby, and an illustration of the effectiveness of the color imagery.
