PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Created with PowerPoint 2010
This is a compelling PowerPoint presentation introducing The Great Gatsby and the icons of the 1920’s that influenced F. Scott Fitzgerald. The content includes the following topics:
 The end of WWI
 The carefree/raucous attitudes of the 20’s
 Icons of the age (including F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald)
 Josephine Baker (stage performer)
 Art Deco/ African Sensibilities in art
 Louise Brooks (silent movie star and fashion icon; the original flapper)
 Other popular actors
 Fashion of the 20’s featuring Coco Chanel
 Jelly Roll Morton and other Jazz musicians
 Prohibition
 Mobsters and Al Capone
 Salvadore Dali
 Belated acclaim for the novel
 Stock Market Crash
 Death of F. and Zelda
There are 30 slides and over 65 vibrant, relevant graphics. There are also 5 embedded videos (url’s included): Josephine Baker’s famous banana dance, Louise Brooks’ performances in The Street of Forgotten Men and Pandora’s Box, the many dances of the 20’s, and “Finger Breaker” an audio of a piano performance by Jelly Roll Morton. I use a large, clear font with an appealing format. Thank you for your consideration. I also have many products in my store for The Great Gatsby including individual chapter activities, other PowerPoints: a broader look at the 20’s, a look at the sets for the movie, and, my favorite, Color Symbolism. There is also an intro activity a color symbolism activity, and essay prompts and other assessment tools. I’ve had many positive reviews and much success in my classroom. Thank you, Old Sport!
