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. Please check out the other Gatsby products in my store including individual chapter activities, color symbolism activity and PowerPoint presentation, a found poem and other creative activities, and a PowerPoint introduction to the 20's and Gatsby. Thank you for your consideration.
