Description

Ready to make your unit on The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald more inclusive? This resource is part of a series to help teachers find supplements and updates for core texts in order to add more inclusivity to their curriculum. For each text, we share easy changes, like paired texts (videos, poems, articles, etc.) you could incorporate on a budget. We also share more difficult changes, like substitutions you could request in the future. We are not saying that you need to replace every text — we want to continue a dialogue on how to make our curricula more inclusive.
 
This curated list represents 15+ hours of research. You can use any of these text suggestions as you plan your unit.
