The Great Gatsby

Reliable/unreliable narrators, the sweep and rush of the 1920's, and a devastatingly clear statement on the American Dream encompass much of what we will focus on as we read The Great Gatsby. Not to be overlooked in this novel is that it is gorgeously written.

Those of you who had Grab, remember how she instructed you not to do your reading homework right before bed? You'll fall asleep. You'll miss a ton. Sticky-note this book. See what you can see and what you can put together.

Tonight, read up to the bottom of page 15 where it says "Gatsby?" demanded Daisy. "What Gatsby?"

If you're in 5th period or one of the 2 or 3 with the white book in 3rd, that ending line comes at about the middle of page 11.
