This activity provides students with more freedom during the reading of The Great Gatsby than the monotonous and typical anticipation guides.
For example, instead of answering questions about each chapter, students must WRITE questions (with answers) for each chapter. I have asked that students write both higher-level and lower-level thinking questions. The handout provides examples of both types of questions to help students distinguish between the two types when creating their own questions.
As is, this assignment asks students to create three questions (with answers) for each chapter. Depending on the overall ability level of the class, however, this requirement can be tweaked to add complexity.
Furthermore, I have designed this assignment to be weighted as a quiz grade, but this too can be tweaked depending on teacher preference.
