Juniors: Characterization in The Great Gatsby

This week, the juniors in Room G17 will continue their reading of The Great Gatsby, continuing their focus on the development of character. Students will use class discussion as the primary tool for considering character: one class discussion this week will be teacher led and another will be student led. In addition to discussion, students will continue their practice of film analysis, applying their understanding of film techniques to their study of character in film. Finally, students will start to consider style in The Great Gatsby, using mentor sentences to practice voice and grammar.
