This Word document is a summary of the plot of The Great Gatsby in "Fill in the Blanks" format. There is one page for each chapter of the novel (9).
There are many summaries of the novel available to students. However, I think that students learn better when they actively construct their own. But, for some that can be a daunting task. This is why I've created this. It's a great support for weaker students, who cannot write their own summary, and who have difficulty focusing on core plot elements.
I use this with all my students for revision. It's a great way to sum up without actually doing all of the work for them. And, they enjoy doing this activity!!
You could use it for assessment. Students demonstrate their understanding of the plot by completing the cloze.
There is a word bank at the bottom of each page to help students. As this is a Word document, you could remove this to make the activity more challenging.
The eight page solution is also included (17 pages in total).
The preview file contains the summary of the first half of Chapter 1, Chapter 1 Word Bank, and the solution to this part.
