Product Description
This is a ready to go activity that includes a handout for students with explicit instructions and a grading rubric that is detailed enough to have a good teacher's aid grade them.

This activity will take students and 90-120 minutes.

It asks students to analyze chapters 1-5 of The Great Gatsby.

***You will need poster paper for this. I have found that 17 by 11 works best.

Pages 1 &2- Student Handout (breaks down the assignment with clear instructions)
Page 3- Grading Rubric (it breaks it down enough to where a good TA can actually grade them for you)
Page 4- A Note to the Teacher

About the assignment:
They must describe the setting, make a claim about Gatsby, identify a symbol, and describe an important moment in the novel thus far. For each of these, they must will have 3 tasks: illustrations, claims/explanations, and textual evidence.

I used this with my 11th graders (grade-level) and found that it was effective. I will actually be creating a second one for chapters 6-9 to explore themes and more symbols.
