This assignment asks students to really analyze what they have learned about the characters and their personalities and motivations through Chapter 7 of the book. They must use that knowledge to write the dialogue between Tom and Daisy at the end of Chapter 7 as they sit at their kitchen table. Nick can see them, but cannot hear what they are saying. The students are asked to write the conversation and then Nick's thoughts after he hears what they say to each other.
