February 15, 2019 - Sophomores - Period 1 and 2

The basic story patterns discussion continues! Everyone should have a Chromebook and access these slides. Take notes along the way.

If I were there we would continue where we left off in Slide show #2 and then move into three. Make sure you know the definitions of everything listed after the title and have enough examples on your notes so that you connect it to a story you personally know.

Today launches the walk in to the second essay task during TGG. Remember that you should be on page 100 when you return on Tuesday.

Colors have meaning. Red means stop. Green means go. Green means nature. So many culturally assigned connections between color and meaning. We'll talk about a bunch of them on Tuesday and will go through these then:

Your task today is to start the process of figuring out what F. Scott Fitzgerald has as the meaning of three colors in TGG. This would normally be very annoying so I've done all of the evidence gathering for you. In each archive below is every single mention of that color in the entire novel with chapter number and page number and paragraph included. You're welcome.

What is not there is any kind of analysis. This is where you come in.

Prompt: F. Scott Fitzgerald uses colors as symbols in The Great Gatsby. What colors does he use and what does each color represent?

Start with any color you like. You will need your personal answer for all three eventually. What does that color mean in TGG. If you read enough of the examples maybe you can come up with a working theory. Color is not always ~just~ a color.

"College-and-career readiness are not the purpose of education. Full development of every child’s capacities is. Preparation for citizenship is. Ethics and a sense of responsibility for oneself and to the community are."--Diane Ravitch - 12/21/2016
