PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Microsoft 07
This activity is eight pages of discussion and questions about color symbolism in The Great Gatsby. I've provided discussion of color symbolism for eleven colors and light and dark imagery. Students are provided with excerpts and quotes from the text that illustrate the effect of the imagery. Often they are asked to identify the imagery and discuss how symbolism enhances characterization and setting. I have students complete this activity in pairs after we complete discussion of the novel. Many times they are amazed at the contribution the color symbolism makes to the novel and their understanding of the characters. Citations refer to the 2004 Scribner Publication of the novel. Font is clear and space is provided for student responses. Appropriate graphics. Please have a look at my other Gatsby products. Thank you for your consideration. NOW AVAILABLE--A POWERPOINT THAT FOLLOWS THE FORMAT OF THIS ACTIVITY. IT'S A GREAT WAY TO GO OVER THE ASSIGNMENT! BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS! PLEASE HAVE A LOOK!
