This Imagery Project is an after reading activity based on the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
For this project, students will carefully select a scene from the novel The Great Gatsby that is filled with imagery. Students will illustrate and analyze the scene. To analyze the scene, students will pick out textual evidence that appeals to the five senses: sight, taste, touch, smell, and sound. Students will describe the effect the descriptive language has on the reader and the overall mood of the scene. Student’s must also explain Fitzgerald’s purpose for the use of imagery in the scene.
