GREAT GATSBY - THE JAZZ AGE: THE 1920's WEBQUEST(granbyhs.nps.k12.va.us)
"THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays the life of the
wealthy during the Jazz Age (the Roaring Twenties).
The 1920s era evokes images of flappers, racoon coats, the Charleston,
These images, however, reflect only a small part of life in this decade.
What was life in the 1920's really like? On what people, events, and
activities does Fitzgerald base THE GREAT GATSBY? In order to get the
most out of the novel, you need to understand the culture of that era.
Therefore, your job is to prepare a "special limited edition"
guidebook, make a Power Point presentation, or write a documented research
paper describing life in the '20's as it really was."
