5th period final is on June 10th.
The Great Gatsby
TUESDAY-FRIDAY; MONDAY & TUESDAY
For the next 6 days we will immerse ourselves in analyzing the text. Beyond simple reading, make sure you are creating lots of post it hair. Connections may include, but are not limited to:
- the wasteland
- romanticism (the self)
- class division (racism, immigration, American Dream)
- the frontier
- post-war sentimentalism
- The Secret Society
- passage of time (structure of story; narrator)
Go above and beyond:
- figurative language
- characterization (facade)
- narrative mode
- syntax and diction
- what else you got??
Two reading quizzes; daily participation (see below); final essay.
DON'T forget to log into turnitin.com and discuss your independent reading book, and log 350 pages with me before or on the final.
