Welcome to the 1920's

Dear Juniors,
If you missed class on Tuesday, April 25th, PLEASE visit with a friend, so that you can obtain the necessary schema prior to reading The Great Gatsby!

Our class period was devoted to learning about the 1920's. The Great Gatsby is set during this time period, so it makes sense that we should discuss it. I gave each student a "graphic organizer" to record the information we discussed in class. It isn't compulsory that you use the organizers, but it does help to keep the information organized and easy for you to follow.

1. Please complete the third CRT Practice Test located at Please print off your final score and record your submitted answers.
2. Plan on a quiz covering the information discussed about the 1920's. Your quiz questions will come directly from the information shared with you during class.
3. Locate information regarding F. SCOTT FITZGERALD. You may use the Internet as your source. Please print off your source, notate it using ORANGE (7-10), make a list of 15 points you discovered about Fitzgerald, and include a Works Cited page.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
