Description

In this lesson, from EDSITEment, students explore the nature of the "secret society" implied in "The Great Gatsby" through a close study of the text, an examination of Fitzgerald's letters and other statements, and a consideration of class, wealth, and status during the turbulent 1920's. Students combine critical thinking, textual analysis, and imaginative writing skills to write a "credo" for the "secret society" implied in "The Great Gatsby."
