Magazine from the 1920s

For this project, you will be required to make a 4-page magazine
which follows the life of The Great Gatsby. It is important that you choose 3
specific news-worthy areas of the novel in which you think the plot revolves
around and you will need to produce some sort of exciting article. It will
have to be in chronological order of when the events occurred in the book so
make sure you are not mixing up events. Below I have provided a rubric on
how this magazine should be created, follow the directions and you will do
great! This is an important test of your understanding of the novel, but it’s
also important you have fun with it.

Here are some tips for making a great magazine article:

 Be creative with font styles and color, but make sure it is easy to read.

 Find an interesting quote outside the book. (Cite in MLA)
 Add photos relating to the plot and the 1920s!
