    Such an important resource

    Posted by Byrle L. on 9th May 2016

    It's important to have a biblically based discussion approach when teaching The Great Gatsby. These are great questions that cover the important literary teaching points as well and also examine the worldview of the author and the characters.

    Exactly what I was looking

    Posted by Monique B. on 12th Nov 2014

    Exactly what I was looking for! My 12th grade daughter read The Great Gatsby 'for fun' and I remembered that Progeny Press had a guide for it, so I ordered it for her. She is enjoying this guide so much! It's her favorite part of her schoolwork right now! I am already considering which guide to order next.... :-)
