Great Gatsby's Jazz

This Great Gatsby's Jazz lesson plan also includes:

As Nick wanders the grounds of Gatsby's mansion, he observes the behaviors of the rowdy guests and listens to the music pouring over the lawn. Bring the music of the jazz age into the classroom with Louis Armstrong's "West End Blues," Duke Ellington's "The Mooch," and Jelly Roll Morton's "Black Bottom Stomp." Groups compare the music of the three and dance to the music. You don't need to be a music major to engage your pupils in this activity because complete directions are included.
