Let’s Read!
  • I’ll read the first few pages with you, and then you’ll work within your table groups to finish the chapter.
  • First, let’s start an interactive journal
collaborative reading
Collaborative Reading
  • The people on the left side of the room are going to read beginning at the top of page 10. Stop where it says “I want to take you down to the stables” (15).
  • The people on the right side of the room are going to read beginning on page 15 where it says “The telephone rang inside, startlingly, and as Daisy shook her head . . .” all the way to the end of page 21.
  • While reading, be sure to fill out the rest of your interactive journal, and as always, be ready to share!

Line up!
  • Find someone from the opposite side of the room and face them in a line the way we did the other day.
  • Now, take a few minutes to discuss what happened in your section of the chapter, as well as your assessment of the character(s), using your evidence to support your argument.
final questions
Final Questions
  • In what ways does Nick judge the other characters? Does he consider himself a judge? What does this assessment say about his position as a narrator?
  • What do we learn about Gatsby in this chapter? What can we as readers infer about his character?
  • What words are used to describe Daisy?
