PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity was created using Microsoft Word 2007. These activities are a great way to encourage students' appreciation of Fitzgerald's lyrical diction and use of figurative language. Directions require students to find and copy/paste a page from the novel, underline illustrative words and phrases, create a topic or theme, then compose a poem using Fitzgerald's great words. Included is a chosen passage with underlined choices; a sample poem, brief explanation of the poem, and a scoring rubric. I've also included another found poem where words have been blackened out leaving a poetic statement. Extra credit encourages students to do the same with a page that is included in their packet. I've included 41 passages (minimized) that you can enlarge so that each student has a different passage. Creative and fun. Clear font and relevant graphic. Please check out my other Gatsby activities. Thank you for your consideration.
