Juniors: Considering Theme in The Great Gatsby

Last week, the juniors in Room G17 were introduced to their final Gatsby paper. Students will write a personal essay comparing and/or contrasting their dream to the dream of a character in the novel. This week, we will engage in multiple activities that will help students brainstorm for this paper.

The final paper is due Thursday, March 2 and will be included in Quarter 3 grades. There will be no article of the week for the next two weeks, as students will focus on paper preparation and returning to readers workshop routines.
