The Great Gatsby: fishbowl #1 (chs 1 & 2)

Today we'll primarily focus our discussion on chapter 2 of The Great Gatsby.

You should feel comfortable, however, to also ask questions about previous sections.  I especially encourage you to do so if you have comprehension questions; use this discussion as an opportunity to understand the reading.

Be sure you...
  • Are an active participant throughout our discussion time.  Dormancy suggestions you're doing other things and may mean you write a written response for ensuing discussions in lieu of participating on the blog.
  • Provide a quote to contextualize each and every question and response.  Be sure to cite these quotes with author & page number.
  • Indicate to whom your question or comment is posted by using the discussion thread.
  • Carefully proofread your work.  This is a writing assignment.
  • Refresh your page often so you can see new posts & ideas.
Happy posting!
