This package includes organizers to thoroughly assess the characters in The Great Gatsby. Students will focus not only the physical attributes and personality of someone, but the mental, emotional, and moral aspects and influences as well. They will be required to include specific examples from the text, including quotations with appropriate page numbers.
Because there's a different organizer for each main character (e.g. Jay Gatsby, Nick Carraway, and Daisy Buchanan, as well as a blank that could be used for other characters), you can easily use this for group work or collaborative learning, as well as for independent use while reading or after reading the novel.
I've used this with my pre-AP students who completed the organizers while independently reading the novel. We then used this as the starting point for an in-depth discussion before they further developed ideas in a timed writing assignment.
