Our next unit for grade 10 English is on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. In order to focus my infographic search, I used keywords from our unit’s Essential Questions, and so ended up with an assortment on Fitzgerald’s portrayal of the American Dream. I narrowed it down to two, primarily because I really like them both and know that my students are captivated by the “new” visuality of literature.
The first infographic is a character map which I’ll use as part of the introduction to the novel as a whole. It’s a great way to grab their attention and allows them to visualize the complexity of character development.
