Students will be able to use textual evidence to chart the development of a character in The Great Gatsby.
In preparation for our "Gatsby" Project*, go to classtools.net and choose "Fakebook." You will create a profile for Nick Carraway, including a photo and header. You must also include at least 3 posts that Nick might have made (feel free to do more.) Make sure you can justify ALL of your choices. Your homework will be to explain textual evidence for every element you include.
For instance, if you were to put in a picture of a man with bright green hair, you would need to be able to tell me what sentence in the text of Gatsby supports that conclusion.
You will have Chapters 3 & 4 annotations due on Monday as well as your vocab quiz on unit 3.
*We will talk about this Project at a later date, but for those of you who at least want some information: You will be tracing the events, character development, archetypes and literary elements used surrounding two characters in The Great Gatsby. Objectives including using textual evidence, constructing a thesis, analyzing literary elements, and incorporating historical context.
