Daisy and Tom are married and have a daughter, but their relationship is strained because Tom is cheating on Daisy. Mr. Gatsby is Nick's mysterious neighbor. People have wild theories about his past, and many do not trust him due to possible illegal business connections. In chapter 1, Fitzgerald creates images of many things, including the beautiful home of Daisy and Tom. His descriptions of the the sprawling yard and expensive home help readers to understand the social class of characters. Nick is impressed by the mansion, which reminds us that he is not as wealthy as Daisy and Tom. George is Myrtle's husband. Myrtle is Tom's mistress. He thinks that she is going to visit her sister in Manhattan. Tom spoils Myrtle by buying her gifts. Myrtle clearly resents Daisy, as she eventually complains about her during the party. Tom and Myrtle argue, and Tom breaks her nose after she says Daisy's name at the party. The glasses of Dr. Eckleburg are an important image in this chapter. They are watching the characters as they travel through the "Valley of Ashes", including Tom's trips to visit Myrtle. These eyes might represent the eyes of god, or the eyes of society, which clearly see the poor behavior of these characters. The party is full of strangers, jazz music, and alcohol. Gatsby's house is open for people to wander around, and people gossip about their theories on Gatsby's past. The party-goers are diverse, but for the most part none of them know who Gatsby is at all. Many of the people are famous actors or high-class couples. Most are just there for the free food and drinks, and want to go crazy. Nick does not realize that a man at his table is actually Gatsby. They talk about their shared experience in the war before Gatsby reveals that he is the host of the party. Gatsby seems to be lying about aspects of his past, and he talks as if he is trying to sound classy. He leaves frequently to make mysterious phone calls. The side plots of Owl-Eyes and the car crash help to set a mood of confusion during the party scene. When Owl-Eyes is found in the library reading all of the un-read books, readers get a glimpse at Gatsby's strange home. Not only does this help to create the confused mood, it also helps to characterize Gatsby as a vain man. Lesson 8.6 Do Now: read the text, write a summary! HW: Continue reading through Chapter 4 of The Great Gatsby. (reading check tomorrow!) Work hard. Be nice. "I do my work!"


"I got you!" "I do my work well, on time!"


"I got you RIGHT NOW!" When you have 10 minutes to get work done, how many of those minutes do you spend actually working? This activity is intentionally frustrating! Try your best to figure out what the Higgs Boson is, based on the paragraph. Independent, Silent Work: The Higgs boson appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field, which is pivotal to the Standard Model.

It explains why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless... This activity was designed to frustrate you. Why is it frustrating? When cooking with oil, one should never try to put out a fire by pouring water on it due to the relative difference in the boiling temperature of oil and water.

Step 1: Notice whether the statement makes you ask "how?" or "why?"

Step 2: Add an explanation to answer "how?" or "why?" Water has a lower boiling point than oil, so when you pour water onto hot, burning oil, the water instantly turns to steam and expands rapidly, exploding burning oil out of the pan. AIM: SWBAT employ explicit logical arguments in order to ensure full expression of a literary analysis. "Coco muerte" describes the fatal accident of a falling coconut breaking a person's skull, which actually causes more deaths each year than shark attacks! Dry ice is made of carbon dioxide, which freezes at -109 degrees. Regular ice becomes slick when you touch it because your body heat melts the ice to form a layer of water, but dry ice is so cold that it freezes your skin instead of melting! Probability states that the outcome of one trial does not influence the possible outcomes of future trials, so choosing a string in order is just as likely as random numbers. The auditory nerve is directly wired to your nervous system and muscles, so when you hear an unexpected sound your muscles twitch without you thinking about it. When you see a scary sight, your eyes have to process the image to your brain, and you have to think about the sight before your brain tells your muscles to move. If your body travels close to the speed of light, reality and time itself will slow down around you. This means that the faster that you are traveling in space, the slower you experience time compared to people who are on earth. The glasses of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg represent...

The author uses them to... 1) Read independently (5 min)
2) Work with partner to answer prompt (5 min)
3) Share out (5 min) 1) Where do we ask "how?" or "why?"

"The flowers were unnecessary, for at two o'clock a greenhouse arrived from Gatsby's, with innumerable receptacles to contain it." Quote Analysis Pg. 86 (Gatsby and Daisy reunite at Nick's house.)

"[Gatsby's] head leaned back so far that it rested against the face of a defunct mantelpiece clock...

...'We've met before,' muttered Gatsby. His eyes glanced momentarily at me, and his lips parted with an abortive attempt at a laugh. Luckily the clock took this moment to tilt dangerously at the pressure of his head, whereupon he turned and caught it with trembling fingers and set it back in place." Quote Analysis Pg. 92 (Daisy's reaction to Gatsby's mansion.)

"He took out a pile of shirts and began throwing them, one by one, before us, shirts of sheer linen and thick silk...
... Suddenly, with a strained sound, Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry stormily.
'They're such beautiful shirts,' she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. 'It makes me sad because I've never seen such - such beautiful shirts before." What might be revealed through the shirts in ch. 6? Criteria for Success:
