The Great Gatsby Chapter 8 Activity for Comprehension and Analysis with Key
Product Description
This is a great activity to guide students through Chapter 8 of The Great Gatsby!

There are five pages with 35 questions (some with questions within the questions) discussing and analyzing plot, characterization, setting, and imagery.

Many of the questions provide quoted material and require students to interpret
(There are 20 quotes or excerpts).

Topics addressed:

--The aftermath of the Myrtle's death.
--Gatsby's recollections about Dan Cody
--Gatsby's initial impressions of Daisy, back when...
--Daisy's activities while waiting for Gatsby's return
--Daisy' and Tom's marriage
--Gatsby's return to Daisy's hometown
--Gatsby's "incorruptible dream"
--George Wilson's memories of the events of the fatal night
--Gatsby's murder and George's suicide
--Nick's and others' reactions to the murder

There are 10 relevant graphics.

I use a clear font.

I allow space for students' responses.

I provide an answer key.

I used Microsoft Word 2007 to create this activity, so it is editable.
