The Great Gatsby
Engage your students with this deceptively simple work detailing the moral decline of upper-class American society during the Roaring Twenties. Within this classic novel, Fitzgerald describes the dreams of Jay Gatsby and the energy and enthusiasm that make him superior to the idle rich he wishes to emulate.
