Product Description
That last section of Chapter 6 of The Great Gatsby beginning “… One autumn night, five years before….” is so spectacular that it deserves its own activity.

I’m an old-fashioned teacher.

Typically my kids read a chapter, complete some activities (graphic organizers, comprehension questions, “find a quote that’s illustrative of….”). Then we talk.

This particular section of the novel is both profound and pivotal.

When did Gatsby turn from pursuit of that platonic conception of himself and devote his life to loving Daisy?

The imagery is challenging, so sometimes the content is lost.

I simply reproduced that section of the chapter and allowed students to work with a partner or in a small group and had them annotate.

They just brainstormed

---anything that they were simply reminded of.

The results were remarkable, and they felt “really smart.”

This product is a copy of that section of Chapter 6 with space for students’ remarks.

The best part of the product is a compilation of the remarks from the class and my own instruction which is based on some research and years of teaching.

Kids spent one 40 minute period on their own.

We spent another period discussing their findings.

I’m pleased to share this with you.
