This is a PowerPoint slide show that will help generate interest before beginning the novel The Great Gatsby. It covers the basics such as plot, characters, major themes, etc. and is set up in a modern theme with characters' pictures from the newest version of the film (2013). The last slide contains links to the theatrical trailers for the 2013 remake. It is sure to get your kids excited about reading this novel!
Note: This works really well with The Great Gatsby Research Project on Life in the 1920s.
