PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Add rigor to your movie study with this The Great Gatsby: Movie Viewing Guide, Questions, Quiz, Hands-On Activities | Excellent for a Substitute Emergency Plan

The activities included could be used with your study of the novel or movie, but they are not novel to film comparisons. This pack works with the 1974 or 2013 version of the movie to study a film as a text. Each of these activities and assignments is classroom tested and student approved!!

If you want students to analyze the movie and show their understanding of literary and thematic concepts through their viewing of this movie, then this is the pack for you. I haven't provided a list of detail-based questions about the movie, but rather questions and activities that get students going beyond the surface. I've used this pack so many times successfully in my class, and students report they love the Gatsby unit!

Included:
Active Viewing Guide
After Viewing Quiz
Three After Viewing Prompt Options
Character Collage Hands-On Project
Symbolism and Theme Interactive Exercise
The American Dream: A Paradox in Gatsby
Super Simple Sub Sheet
Human Plot Chart
Green Light Reading Passages and Video Link
Mini PPT for Intro to Roaring 20s and American Dream (PPT and PDF)

♥ "This resource was great and saved my life at the end of this school year. We did not have time to actually read Gatsby but I wanted my students to still have some exposure. With this pack, I felt like they got just as much out of the movie!"
