It's going down at the Plaza Hotel! Analyze the showdown between Gatsby and Tom in Chapter 7 of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby with this engaging activity.
Students will examine Fitzgerald's use of the "scenic method" by awarding Gatsby and Tom points (positive AND negative) to see "who is winning" at key parts of the chapter.
This activity will trick your students into closely reading and analyzing the text, but they won't realize it as they are furiously tracking who is in the lead of the Gatsby vs. Tom competition! :)
