Product Description
This is an example of a chapter review I created for an eleventh grade English course. It is the first chapter review for The Great Gatsby, and it includes the answer key. The chapter reviews are geared as a study guide for their final exam and are not meant to replace lessons. My chapter reviews are richly detailed and helped the students' comprehension of the novel and its themes. (My Gatsby unit focused on the following themes: The American Dream, reliving the past, shallowness/corruption/hollowness of the rich, and friendship and loyalty.) The reviews were offered as a completion grade if turned in completed the next class period. (These students were on block schedule, and as Gatsby's chapters are light, fifteen pages per day was easy to manage.) Each review was worth 1 point added to their final test grade, totaling to ten points. My study guides have page numbers, but I found if the page numbers don't match or you want your students to dig further, making a copy and then whiting out the page numbers before making class copies works well. I don't like handing things out for homework, but as we can't read an entire novel in class, this worksheet works well in keeping the student focused on the book outside of the classroom. (As for the completion, I put all the answer spaces on the back of the page so that grading would be faster.)
