Questions: With a partner, you are going to choose two major aspects of the novel.
Example: The massive party that Gatsby throws vs. The small get together at Nicks
Answer these questions:
1. Why are these significant to one another?
2. Are there any similarities between the two?
3. Do these develop over the course of the novel? How?

Word- make it look exciting (different fonts, add photos)
• Can include: what the character ate that day, who they thought of, what they did,
what they thought of the day. Make it seem very personal, something that only
the character would know. Be creative, but it must relate to the book— don’t
make something up that doesn’t seem like it would happen.
