CavLibrary and Mrs. Erin Lee’s English 3 classes celebrate The Great Gatsby with 1920s-themed learning stations.  Upon the completion of their reading of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, students visited CavLibrary to participate in six learning stations.

At Station 1 students entered the “speakeasy” to view a Prohibition video.
