Wadena-Deer Creek sophomore students recently finished reading "The Great Gatsby," a novel written by Minnesota-born author F. Scott Fitzgerald.


WDC English teacher Beth Hawkins said the novel teaches students many literary elements, as well as a snapshot in history during the Roaring 1920s.

"It's beautifully written work," said Hawkins of Fitzgerald's book. "It helps students understand symbolism, irony, characterization and many other literary elements."
