Product Description
Students can realize the relevance of the concepts in The Great Gatsby!

This is an activity that I have students complete after reading The Great Gatsby.

There are two critical articles,
----" Social Stratification: The Great Gatsby as Social Commentary" and
----"In Praise of Comfort: Displaced Spirituality in The Great Gatsby."

These were taken from the Cliff's Notes website.

What follows are 13 questions and two charts for students to complete
while or after reading.

Questions address

----the distinctions between the social classes (titled old money, new money, and no money),
----deadly sins and cardinal virtues,
----common vices displayed in the novel, and
----association of geographical areas with moral turpitude.
