Help me give my students a classroom set of The Great Gatsby to explore how societal norms and constructs affect us as individuals.
About 115 students spend a portion of their day in my classroom. Each one, in a multitude of ways, inspires me to be the best mentor I can be.
My students like to learn and to laugh, to think and to create, and to reflect upon themselves as individuals who, in even the smallest way, can change the world.
My students are naturally curious and refreshingly social. They manage to maintain a sense of humor even as they begin to assume greater responsibilities as students, as members of their families, and as citizens of our school and community. They are active learners who enjoy thinking, collaborating, analyzing, and connecting to the world around them. They are encouraging and supportive of each other and of me. They have helped to create a sense of community in the classroom - a learning family - and have become invested in not only their own learning but the learning of others.
They are going places, and I am so very proud of them.
My Junior English classes focus on a yearly theme of “Exploring Elements Society” with units involving a close look at societal structures; government; values and beliefs: understanding and appreciating differences; individual and human rights; equality and social movements; fear, freedom, and justice; and empathy and compassion.
In my English classes, students are given the opportunity to examine the world around them by using contemporary and classic literature as a springboard for hearty discussions, exploration, and analysis.
As students read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, they explore themes of society and class as well as visions of America. We explore the influence that society has on the characters as the story progresses, and by extension explore how our own society influences us as individuals. Overall, this novel offers opportunities to explore contemporary issues through historical contexts.
