PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Scaffold the challenging first chapter of F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic The Great Gatsby with these engaging learning stations designed to get your students critically thinking about key excerpts BEFORE they read.

I facilitate these learning stations before assigning Chapter 1 for reading homework. I've found that assigning Chapter 1 without prior support results in a lot of confusion and frustration, so I created these stations to support my students going into the novel. I LOVE Gatsby, so I don't want their frustration with the complex, long first chapter to discourage them or give them the wrong impression of this phenomenal novel. (This first chapter can be tough, that's for sure.)

Each learning station contains a key excerpt with 1-2 essential questions. The stations include the following:
-Meet the narrator, Nick
-What's up with the eggs? (Setting)
-Meet and greet Daisy/Tom
-The GREAT Gatsby

Although I designed this activity to function as pre-reading scaffolding, this activity could also work as an after-reading activity to prompt students to hone in on essential details.
