Product Description
Students love this creative approach to examining imagery in
The Great Gatsby!

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.
