Product Description
This is a character sketch of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Gatsby, accompanied by writing activities which encourage students to really get into the character of Jay Gatsby.

The notes consider the character of Gatsby under the following headings
* Who is Jay Gatsby?
* Physical Description
* A man of mystery
* The image Gatsby presents
* Gatsby as a good character
* Gatsby as a bad character
* Do we feel sympathetic towards Gatsby?
* Is Gatsby Great?

I usually deliver the character information in a lecture format, and get students to take notes. I do this when we have finished reading the novel.
I give them the printed notes when we return to revise the novel, or when students are preparing for an examination.

There are 8 writing tasks. These activities test students' knowledge of the novel and of Gatsby. They also test their ability to see events from more than one viewpoint. They are high order writing activities, so they are also designed to improve student's abilities in different styles of writing. Styles include:
- Diary Entry
- Letter
- Dialogue
- Newspaper / Radio / Television Report
Most assignments include hints, sub-headings or structure guides to provide a starting point or scaffolding to help students get started.

This is a Word document, so easily editable to suit your class.
