  • You are both gathering evidence to address the prompt (plot, symbols, basically what should we know about your chapter), and working on the presentation.
  • Use members wisely. Make the most of your time.

  • Today, you should have all the info you need for your 3-5 minute (timed) presentation.
  • Focus today on the presentation part: what is your visual? What is the speaking order? Who is saying what?
  • Groups who are on track for an A will be ready to PRACTICE PERFORMING the presentation today.
  • Assign yourself HW: can the group get together to practice during Dippy? HR? after school? Practice your parts in front of a mirror and people. Get feedback about how you can present better!

  • Look over the prompt from your novel packet
  • Review what you have so far. Add what you know now after finishing the book to the 6 aspects on the prompt

great gatsby
Great Gatsby

1. Allusion to Carnival Magicians or Performers

“Step right up and see the “The Great …”

Gatsby as an illusionist. Nothing is real about him. Gatsby vsGatz

2. His great wealth and power acquired

3. His ability to dream and make his dreams a reality.

Dream gives his life meaning, unlike Tom


Gatsby likened to Ben Franklin

  • Rags to Riches
  • Agenda like Franklin’s
  • Made his own identity (symbolized in name change)
  • AKA Gatsby symbolizes the “American” or the American Spirit etc.
