We also talked about registration for senior English classes. If you would like to download a copy of the course descriptions for yourself or your parents, please see below. We will be registering for senior classes on Thursday during English class.
Your assignment is to read chapter 7, do the reading guides, and do the American Dream wiki entry:
We’ve talked a lot about the American Dream and its official definition. However, everybody has his or her own American Dream, based on the things that define success for that person.
Please write a wiki entry (like a Wikipedia entry) about The American Dream in The Great Gatsby. Your wiki entry should define the general idea of what the American Dream is, and then it should address how the American Dream plays out differently for Gatsby, Myrtle, Daisy, Nick, and others in the book. Use examples from the story, and cite them (even if they’re not direct quotations) with the page number.
This is one of the assignments that goes in your Gatsby notebook.
