PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Great Gatsby Unit Plan
By Lit Scholar

Thank you for your interest in my unit plan for The Great Gatsby! This is by far one of my favorite novels to teach, and I have taught it at both the high school and college levels. The modernist period is my specialty, and I really enjoy sharing that knowledge with students. This novel is a student favorite!

I have included several activities, assessments, and notes with this unit plan. I don’t always use everything included here—it really depends on the class. If I have a very engaged class, we often just have open-ended discussions where I draw their attention to certain aspects of the novel. However, some classes need more structure, and they respond better to PowerPoints, structured discussions, and group activities. In any case, everything you need to teach the novel is included! Most of the items are only available as part of this bundle, which is only $2 more than the separately available items.

Contents:

Teacher Reference:
o Notes: I have included what I loosely call “lecture notes.” I rarely lecture, but it’s helpful for me to have a visual reminder of topics and passages I want to cover. (only available in bundle)
o Ben Franklin’s daily schedule: A copy from Ben Franklin’s autobiography to compare to James Gatz’s boyhood schedule (useful if you teach Gatsby as a version of the self-made American man. (only available in bundle)
o sample reading schedule (only available in bundle)

PowerPoints:
o Introduction to The Great Gatsby and Modernism
o Chapters 1 and 2
o Chapter 3 (only available in bundle)
o Chapter 7
o Chapter 8 and wrap-up (only available in bundle)

Activities
o Discussion Questions (additional questions available with bundle)
o Close Reading Activities
o Poster or comic strip activity (only available in bundle)

Study Aids for Students
o Moral Geography handout (only available in bundle)
o Character chart (only available in bundle)
o Party Comparison Chart (only available in bundle)

Assessments
o Short reading checks (and keys) (additional quizzes available with bundle)
o Final Test with Key (note: the test is multiple choice and short answer. Essay tests work well, but those are quick to write, and the short answer/close reading questions could easily be expanded). (only available in bundle)
