Are your students reading F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby? If so, you are probably interested in helping them find ways to process their understanding of the novel and its major themes. One thing you can do is have students periodically complete journal entries related to the text. When students write in journals about literature, they can focus more on their thought process and reflection than on a particular product or outcome. This means they can experiment with different ideas and perspectives, ultimately moving in closer to the literature as a result. The journal topics in this lesson will help students get as much as possible out of their reading of The Great Gatsby.
