What Words Tell Us About Characters


Authors carefully select the words they use to describe characters, as each word reveals
a facet of his or her personality. Use this handout to support student comprehension
as they read The Great Gatsby. Review the contents of the chart as a class. Encourage
students to refer back to this worksheet as necessary as they read the text. You can
also have students add to the chart as or after they read, finding their own examples
of character descriptions.
