Tandem Juniors Find Houses for Great Gatsby Characters

Tandem juniors are studying F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby with teacher Tucker Winter. This week students participated in a House Hunters: Great Gatsby Edition activity where they used current Zillow listings located near the New York setting of the book to choose the "Best" house for characters Nick, Gatsby, Tom & Daisy, and Myrtle & George. Students had five actual listings for each person's house from which to choose, and they had to write a statement for each justifying their choices based on their understanding of each character in the novel from their reading. There were some pretty fascinating houses to choose from.
