Product Description
Want to get your students excited about starting The Great Gatsby by engaging them in powerful prereading activities?

It’s essential to set the tone at the beginning of a unit—when your students are eager to start their new book, it makes teaching that much easier. In order to do that, you need to make the novel relevant to their lives and to the issues that they face on a daily basis.

When you start your Gatsby unit with these activities you will:

get your students thinking about the themes and conflicts of the novel from the inside out by working through two different thematically relevant creative writing exercises

• show your classes why this classic novel is still relevant today

improve your students’ writing skills while they are having fun writing creatively and participating in fun games

• watch an entertaining and eye-opening TED Talk on research about how money and privilege affect people

engage your classes in powerful discussion about important questions by using the ready-to-go prompts on all three activities

• easily convey instructions for the activities to your classes by projecting the slides for all of the activities

discover how easy it is to get your students excited about learning

Your students will be thinking and talking about these memorable activities for a long time.
