This would be great for pairing with The Great Gatsby.
The New York Times' collection of resources for teaching F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby.
"Studio 360 explores F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and finds out how this compact novel became the great American story of our age. Novelist Jonathan Franzen tells Kurt Andersen why he still reads it every year or two, and writer Patricia Hampl explains why its lightness is deceptive. We’ll drive around the tony Long Island suburbs where Gatsby was set, and we’ll hear from Andrew Lauren about his film G, which sets Gatsby among the hip-hop moguls. And Azar Nafisi describes the power of teaching the book to university students in Tehran. Readings come courtesy of Scott Shepherd, an actor who sometimes performs the entire book from memory."
The NY Times offers "resources on, and related to, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” hoping they might help your students appreciate Mr. Nobody from Nowhere and hear the money in Daisy’s voice. "
Gatsby's green light symbolizes the aspirations of Americans from all backgrounds.
