Day 58 (3/28): Questioning Gatsby

Warm Up:
Please get out your Gatsby text.  Using the slips of paper I have provided, please locate (in chapters 4-6) and copy down either
  • a quote that you find beautiful, important, interesting, compelling, confusing, or otherwise worthy of discussion, OR
  • a moment, situation, scene, character detail, or setting that stands out to you as powerful, intriguing, unexpected, etc.
Be sure to also record the page number where the quote or scene can be found.

ELAGSE11-12RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
ELAGSE11-12RL2 Determine two or more themes or central ideas of text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to produce a complex account; provide an objective summary of the text.
ELAGSE11-12RL3 Analyze the impact of the author’s choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama (e.g., where a story is set, how the action is ordered, how the characters are introduced and developed).
ELAGSE11-12RL5 Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text (e.g., the choice of where to begin or end a story, the choice to provide a comedic or tragic resolution) contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact.
ELAGSE11-12W7 Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject
under investigation.

Essential Questions:
  1. How does Fitzgerald develop a compelling story that implies more than it says?
  2. How can questioning help me develop my critical reading skills?
  • Quiz, Chapters 4-6
  • Pick-a-quote warm-up
  • Gatsby Question Development and Analysis Exercise (On Google Classroom)
