Students read an excerpt from Chapter 9 of The Great Gatsby and an excerpt from Prologue to The Way to Rainy Mountain.  They analyze how the theme of the American Dream is presented in both texts and also begin to consider that the American Dream is more than just material items; it is about the journey to reach goals.
