Suggested to accompany a class reading of The Great Gatsby, this plan begins with a discussion emphasizing the reputation of Vanderbilt University. Then, after the class has a working knowledge of the wealth associated with the school, they read "The Fallacy of Success" by G.K. Chesterton. As they read, they stop to summarize paragraphs and discuss their observations with a peer. To wrap it up, they choose two claims that Chesterton makes and write a paragraph explaining the development of these claims throughout the text.
