PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

RIP Gatsby! In order to lament Gatsby’s death and explore Nick’s complex attitude toward Gatsby in light of his death, students will write an obituary, eulogy, or elegy for Gatsby, from Nick’s point of view.

I use this to a) allow some creative writing (which students LOVE), b) assess my students' understanding of Nick's attitude toward Gatsby, c) to prepare students to discuss why Nick is the most effective narrator, and d) to hold a "funeral" for Gatsby! I give my students a day to write these obituaries, eulogies, or elegies, and then we spend the next day delivering them. We all dress in black and mourn the death of the great Jay Gatsby. This "funeral" is always a hit among my students!

This product is a 1-page PDF with an excerpt of the "holocaust" of Chapter 8, an explanation of the assignment, and a pre-writing task in which students must explain Nick's complex attitude toward Gatsby, using textual evidence to support their answers.
