Character symbolism poems are fun ways to get your students analyzing characters in texts as well as introduce figurative language and symbolism.
First, students will analyze characters in The Great Gatsby
by identifying a symbol for each character, drawing a picture of the symbol, and explaining what the symbol represents.
Next, students will choose one character from The Great Gatsby
to create a character symbolism poem.
Finally, students will turn their poem into a final draft in the form of a concrete poem.
This resource includes a PowerPoint presentation that you can use to teach the Character Symbolism Poem.
