Gatsby Test Review for weekend and Monday night:
Test will be mostly closed book, except for the essay section since you will need to cite passages. In the past, after about 30 minutes, I have allowed 10 minutes with the book.
Format of the objective portion will include multiple choice questions of broader themes than the very specific daily quiz questions (samples below in review activities) and several matching sections (characters, quotes, themes).
I'm still pondering the essay portion. We need to practice writing in a TIMED setting for the AP class & exams next year. We may end up doing that on Thursday.
**ALL of these sites for review below worked for students last year. ALL of these sites work on my computers at school and at home. I don't know what you do/don't have access to with your filter this year. If you can't open them on your laptop, try a home computer or a library computer.
Advice: Set aside an hour or two to work through all of these activities!
1. To get started with review, watch this SUMMARY
2. View Gatsby's Life Story
4. Spark Notes Quiz
5. Quote Flashcards from The Great Gatsby--go through all of the cards!
6. Characters and Symbols in The Great Gatsby--play multiple times to access all terms
7. Who Wants to be a Millionaire Review-- make sure you have run updates on your laptop so Adobe flash works
8. Cliff's Notes Quiz
9. Top 10 Quotes from The Great Gatsby (Click the Skip to Content Button if necessary)
*Two other good ways to review are to skim through the highlighted portions of the book to remind yourself where those important passages are and to go back to view your previous Quia quizzes at Student Zone.
11. Fun Trivia Quiz
12. Another Fun Trivia Quiz
13. **Review Winter Dreams Here--Like The Great Gatsby, "Winter Dreams" sketches a disillusioned view of the American search for wealth and its horrible effect on relationships. "Winter Dreams," The Great Gatsby, and many of Fitzgerald's other works aim to show us that material wealth, at the end of the day, isn't all its cracked up to be.
14. Go back over the F. Scott Fitzgerald video notes. Think about how the Great Gatsby is autobiographical. Take a look at Winter Dreams worksheet as well and remember parallels between Dexter and Judy and Gatsby and Daisy.

Do Close Reading of pp. 79-83 about Daisy and Gatsby's past
Discuss what "bombshells" are uncovered with this monologue. Fitzgerald had to drastically change this section of the novel's format; the rest of the book is written entirely from Nick's perspective. This is the only scene that gives us information outside of Nick's knowledge. Also look at the final paragraph of Chapter 4 where Nick kisses Jordan (not out of love, but because he was jealous that he didn't have someone to "haunt" him like Tom and Gatsby). Students ALWAYS argue that Nick does this because he realizes that he likes Jordan. But go back to the text! Phrases like "the girl beside me" and "wan, scornful mouth" give away his general disregard for who Jordan is---he just wants to have someone, at least temporarily.
(does any of this remind you of Dexter and Judy?)
