Great Gatsby Review Course
The Great Gatsby is one of those books that most people who’ve been to high school in the US has at least read a summary of. Enjoying the book, however, is not something that most people can claim. This course is meant to take students one step further, giving them the structure to help them understand and enjoy the book without giving them all the answers.
Who's it for?
This course is perfect for students who are either reading The Great Gatsby for class and are a little confused about what’s going on or for students who are interested in diving into the classic novel for themselves and could use a little bit of extra support.
How it works
Our English Literature course on The Great Gatsby consists of fun, 10-minute microlessons that are perfect for busy students on the go. Every day we encourage students to complete 1+ challenge and build on what they learned the day before. By the end of this course, students will not only understand the context of the book but will also have a better understanding of the themes (and events) of the book itself and be well-equipped to answer any essay questions that can be thrown their way in class.
Why The Great Gatsby matters
You aren’t going to get tested on The Great Gatsby in a job interview (unless you’re applying to teach mid-twentieth century literature!). However, understanding Fitzgerald’s classic will enrich your life by helping you understand so many references to the book that come up in modern culture.
Self-paced online learning with text-message study reminders.
