Product Description
This document models how students might approach a difficult passage from chapter 6 of The Great Gatsby. I highlight various aspects of the text, include sample annotations, use images to help students visualize Fitzgerald's language choices, and include a paragraph that interprets the passage.

This is one of several mini-lessons on close reading that I give, leading up to students writing their own close reading paragraphs. I have used this as a handout, I have projected it on a smart board, and I have posted it on my course website. Before using this, teachers might have students look up difficult words such as "Platonic" and "meretricious."
