The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby is a text frequently used by teachers, particulalry in Part 2 and Part 3 of the course, but do not let that put you off: it is a perennial favourite for so many teachers because it works so well as a text for this age-group, with its cast of recognisable and memorable characters, its vividly recreated and distinctive setting, its enduring themes and its beautiful and richly figurative prose style.  It manages to be both accessible and challenging at the same time, making it a text that appeals to, and strecthes, students of all backgrounds and abilities.  

The ideas and resources on the following pages have been designed with Part 2 in mind though they could easily be adapted for any Part of the course.
