    The Great Gatsby Poster Collage Project: Characterization



    You will assigned a character (Nick, Tom, Daisy, Myrtle, George, Gatsby, or Jordan) from The Great Gatsby.  On a poster, make a collage to represent that character’s personality.  From looking at your collage, I should know the character’s likes and dislikes, character’s history and background, important moments and events in his/her life, and why this character is important to the novel.  You should use both words and images to portray the lifestyle of your character.  You will briefly present your collage to the class, explaining which character you chose and how you chose to represent that character.
