Created with PowerPoint 2007. This is a great resource to use when discussing the fabulous color symbolism in The Great Gatsby. There are 60 slides. Discussion of each color begins with naming the color, introducing its symbolism, and a providing a few examples of universal symbols. For example, white means purity and innocence; symbols include a bride, a child in white, and a dove. Following the initial discussion of each color’s meaning, are slides depicting the use of the color symbolism in the novel. These slides include relevant graphics, quotes from the novel, and questions to prompt students’ participation in the presentation. There are over 80 graphics, over 60 quotes, and over 30 questions. The font is large and clear. Graphics are vibrant and engaging. In my store, you’ll find the same information, quotes, and questions in worksheet form. I typically have students complete the worksheet with a partner, then use the PowerPoint to confirm their discoveries. It is a very successful activity and students are often surprised and fascinated that they can identify and analyze the imagery. Please have a look at my other Gatsby products that include a 1920’s Introduction PowerPoint, unit plan, assessments, and individual chapter worksheets. Thank you for your consideration.
