This slideshow presentation begins with an introduction to the society and mindset in which The Great Gatsby takes place. I used a poem by T.S. Eliot to shape the tone for the rest of the novel.
Examples from Chapter 1 lesson plan-
"Find examples in the text that identify the characters as members of the upper class."
"How does Nick describe Daisy and Tom?"
Lesson plans are complete with Aim, Do Now and Homework assignments.
