Product Description
Fitzgerald was channeling his inner Nelly, because Chapter 7 of The Great Gatsby is essential a literary version of "Hot in Herre."

But seriously, he is spoon-feeding readers some good old-fashioned weather symbolism, so it would be a shame not to analyze it!

Weather symbolism can be tough, and it sounds like one of those far-out concepts that make us English teachers look crazy, but this is the PERFECT example of it, because the heat is mentioned so much. (I counted 22 times on one page and then got bored...so there's that.)

This activity requires students to highlight and annotate the heat references and then analyze the symbolism. It's a great activity to model and then release the students for partnered or independent practice, and it's also the perfect opportunity to casually play the first 32 seconds of Nelly's "Hot in Herre." (Or maybe that's just me).
