Product Description
PowerPoint with two constructed response writing prompts (or just use as writing assignments) to go along with The Great Gatsby. Lyrics to a song that is played in the 1974 Gatsby movie when Gatsby (Robert Redford) goes for a swim just before his end. I have the lyrics on the slide along with the writing prompt.
Then, fast forward to the 2013 Gatsby movie and use a song from the soundtrack that captures Daisy's persona and dilemma. Images from both movies and the musicians throughout. Unique, creative writing prompts.
I have notes written under the slides when necessary to give you an idea of how to introduce the songs. The music itself can be listened to for free from YouTube or whatever other magical technological ways you have. I play the songs from my phone through a speaker.
Depending on time, I sometimes model the lyrical connection writing with the first prompt, and then have them do the second one on their own.

See also my Microsoft Word document of the writing prompts with the re-printed lyrics and space for drafting and writing.
