Women of the Twenties and The Great Gatsby

Students research social elements of the 1920s.  In this persuasive writing lesson, students make comparisons between women of the 1920s and women in the 21st century.  They work in small groups to discuss the women in The Great Gatsby, and conduct additional Internet research to gain more information about the 1920s.  Each group will complete a persuasive essay in response to a prompt about whether life was better in the 1920s or the 21st century.
