Teaching The Great Gatsby: A Common Core Close Reading Seminar
Published in 1925, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby has transcended the era of its creation to become a classic. It describes the moral and spiritual toll exacted by that quintessentially American quest, the pursuit of happiness, the “orgiastic future” that “year by year recedes before us.” This seminar will explore the novel’s themes and language and suggest ways to teach it through close reading.
Seminar Leader: Sean McCann
Professor of English, Wesleyan University
National Humanities Center Fellow
Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2013
Time: 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. (EST)
