Abstract

In this session, participants will take part in an interactive document exercise designed for middle and high school level students which explores three Hollywood productions of the same title, The Great Gatsby. In addition to exploring the historical content surrounding the roaring twenties and post-war America, the lesson ideas shared also highlight (a) the manner in which contemporary social and cultural moods shape motion pictures and (b) shift over time. The lessons also illustrate the value of film as an instructional tool in the history classroom. Lesson materials will be shared.
