Summary

That night, Nick comes home from the city after a date with Jordan. He is surprised to see Gatsby s mansion lit up brightly, but it seems to be unoccupied, as the house is totally silent. As Nick walks home, Gatsby startles him by approaching him from across the lawn. Gatsby seems agitated and almost desperate to make Nick happy he invites him to Coney Island, then for a swim in his pool. Nick realizes that Gatsby is nervous because he wants Nick to agree to his plan of inviting Daisy over for tea. Nick tells Gatsby that he will help him with the plan. Overjoyed, Gatsby immediately offers to have someone cut Nick s grass. He also offers him the chance to make some money by joining him in some business he does on the side business that does not involve Meyer Wolfshiem. Nick is slightly offended that Gatsby wants to pay him for arranging the meeting with Daisy and refuses Gatsby s offers, but he still agrees to call Daisy and invite her to his house.

It rains on the day of the meeting, and Gatsby becomes terribly nervous. Despite the rain, Gatsby sends a gardener over to cut Nick s grass and sends another man over with flowers. Gatsby worries that even if Daisy accepts his advances, things between them will not be the same as they were in Louisville. Daisy arrives, but when Nick brings her into the house, he finds that Gatsby has suddenly disappeared. There is a knock at the door. Gatsby enters, having returned from a walk around the house in the rain.

At first, Gatsby s reunion with Daisy is terribly awkward. Gatsby knocks Nick s clock over and tells Nick sorrowfully that the meeting was a mistake. After he leaves the two alone for half an hour, however, Nick returns to find them radiantly happy Daisy shedding tears of joy and Gatsby glowing. Outside, the rain has stopped, and Gatsby invites Nick and Daisy over to his house, where he shows them his possessions. Daisy is overwhelmed by his luxurious lifestyle, and when he shows her his extensive collection of English shirts, she begins to cry. Gatsby tells Daisy about his long nights spent outside, staring at the green light at the end of her dock, dreaming about their future happiness.

Nick wonders whether Daisy can possibly live up to Gatsby s vision of her. Gatsby seems to have idealized Daisy in his mind to the extent that the real Daisy, charming as she is, will almost certainly fail to live up to his expectations. For the moment, however, their romance seems fully rekindled. Gatsby calls in Klipspringer, a strange character who seems to live at Gatsby s mansion, and has him play the piano. Klipspringer plays a popular song called Ain t We Got Fun? Nick quickly realizes that Gatsby and Daisy have forgotten that he is there. Quietly, Nick gets up and leaves Gatsby and Daisy alone together.

Analysis

Chapter 5 is the pivotal chapter of The Great Gatsby, as Gatsby s reunion with Daisy is the hinge on which the novel swings. Before this event, the story of their relationship exists only in prospect, as Gatsby moves toward a dream that no one else can discern. Afterward, the plot shifts its focus to the romance between Gatsby and Daisy, and the tensions in their relationship actualize themselves. After Gatsby s history with Daisy is revealed, a meeting between the two becomes inevitable, and it is highly appropriate that the theme of the past s significance to the future is evoked in this chapter. As the novel explores ideas of love, excess, and the American dream, it becomes clearer and clearer to the reader that Gatsby s emotional frame is out of sync with the passage of time. His nervousness about the present and about how Daisy s attitude toward him may have changed causes him to knock over Nick s clock, symbolizing the clumsiness of his attempt to stop time and retrieve the past.

We’re reading The Great Gatsby and WE HAVE THOUGHTS

Gatsby s character throughout his meeting with Daisy is at its purest and most revealing. The theatrical quality that he often projects falls away, and for once all of his responses seem genuine. He forgets to play the role of the Oxford-educated socialite and shows himself to be a love-struck, awkward young man. Daisy, too, is moved to sincerity when her emotions get the better of her. Before the meeting, Daisy displays her usual sardonic humor; when Nick invites her to tea and asks her not to bring Tom, she responds, Who is Tom ? Yet, seeing Gatsby strips her of her glib veneer. When she goes to Gatsby s house, she is overwhelmed by honest tears of joy at his success and sobs upon seeing his piles of expensive English shirts.

The lesson will also include an emphasis on the psychology of why money has value. Students will also consider how different currencies are valued. As an extension activity, they can research different countries’ currencies and exports.

This lesson plan will teach high school students the role of banks, and the decisions they make to determine when to lend money. Specifically, students will learn about the components of creditworthiness, including how banks might decide who it is safe to lend money to. This lesson plan will teach high school students the basics of credit risk. As an extension activity, students can do research into what kind of business they might like to have one day, and how to position it to be creditworthy.

This lesson plan will teach high school students the importance of financial management for a small business. It will help students learn the concepts of business costs, positive cash flow, credit, and proper financial management in running a business. Students will learn the tools for basic financial analysis, and will investigate why the business in the video segments was not successful. As an extension activity, they can brainstorm ideas for a model new business, given what they have learned about the financial needs of a new business.

This lesson plan tackles major personal finance issues in young people’s futures: career choice, home buying, and budgeting. The lesson plan will teach high school students how education and skills impact career choice. It will also help students learn the basics of budgeting for big expenses, like mortgage payments. Students will learn the about interest and loans, and how those personal finance tools can help them afford larger purchases like homes, while still managing their finances responsibly.

In recent U.S. conflicts, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, U.S. military and government officials have kept American reporters away from the front lines. Michael Gordon of The New York Times. Carol Morello of The Washington Post. Sarah Chayes of National Public Radio. and others note that restrictions on their access to information have gone beyond what they’ve seen in previous conflicts.

This lesson plan will teach high school students the basics of credit, including what a credit rating is, and what goes into the analysis that results in a credit rating. Students will also learn about small-business financial management through creating a model business, and having to determine how to take out a loan to expand the business. Students will use the concepts of good credit versus bad credit to understand that good credit is necessary for taking out a loan.

This lesson plan will teach high school students the basics of budgeting, including understanding how revenue and expenses interact. The context will be budgeting for college expenses, and will yield information that the student will actually be able to use in real life. Students will put together some different budget scenarios of what it REALLY costs to go to college, using online resources that they research independently.

This lesson will focus on the need to plan financially for unexpected disasters, showcasing the devastation that can occur from natural catastrophes.

Specifically, it will examine the importance of the revival of the cultural, educational, and religious institutions in the Gulf Coast. Students will examine concepts of scarce resources, cost-benefit analysis, opportunity costs, and economic incentives in determining how to rebuild and revitalize a neighborhood.

In this lesson, students learn what it means to be a smart consumer by engaging in a level-headed analysis of budget, opportunity costs and self-regulation. Students compare prices within a service field, and weigh the choices of spending money on that item, saving that money, or spending the money on something else. This exercise is a good opportunity to present basic economic concepts.

In this lesson, students watch an Instructional Television (ITV) video and participate in a simulation to learn about supply and demand and how those two forces affect price. The supply and demand simulation will also bring out the concept of self regulation. Students who want objects in high demand will have to decide if they are worth the price.

This mini-unit (set of lessons) uses games, easy explanations, and the “Trading Places” episode of the popular animated series CYBERCHASE to teach kids about financial literacy. Kids learn the value of currency and how to save and earn interest. In a key lesson, kids even get to purchase items in their classroom’s general store. It’s a fun way to learn the importance of being financially literate!

In this lesson, students explore the concepts of borrowing and credit with an emphasis on credit cards. Students learn how credit works, why banks and other corporations extend credit, and what credit consumers need to know, including how to preserve their access to credit and how to avoid “credit trouble.” Students also consider the real cost of buying on credit, weighing the costs and benefits of credit purchases against the option of budgeting and saving. Finally, students will consider various real offers made by credit providers and decide which offer, among several, is the best.

These financial education lesson plans were made possible through the generous support of the Citigroup Foundation.

IEP Goals, Objective and Activities

NASET has created a simple, and easy to use application for the iPad and iPhone. The IEP Goals, Objectives Activities App provides a convenient tool to easily choose and build a student’s list of IEP Annual Goals, Short Term Objectives, and Behavioral Objectives.

In order to do this, you will be able to choose from:

  • Numerous Annual Goal areas;
  • Over 100 Short Term Objectives
  • Almost 5,000 Behavioral Objectives

Plus, this app allows you to:

  • Plan each student’s educational curriculum
  • Develop, from a list of over 2,700 Suggested Activities, enrichment experiences to enhance student development
  • Export the assembled annual goals, short term objectives and behavioral objectives for each student via email

Failure Free Reading’s materials include a unique combination of print, talking software, and teacher directed lessons. Classroom kits include teacher’s manual, reinforcement activities, student workbooks, independent reading booklets, instructional readers, flashcards, parent communication letters, certificate of accomplishments, and more. Software includes spelling, listening comprehension, story books, language development, reading comprehension activities and more. The software also has Spanish resources for teaching English to Spanish speaking students.

Failure Free Reading uses a model of repetition, control, and feedback – integrating teacher, text, and technology. The program is integrated and coordinated to provide multiple exposures in multiple contexts. Students read material that is designed to be of interest to students in their grade/age level; the logic of the program is that at each and every level, repetition, semantic support in the form of word meaning and word pronunciations, and the “additive” principle of sentence complexity (which is relaxed in grade 3 and above) provide the scaffolding that helps students cope with the texts.

Welcome to Martha Sherpa s Cooking School in Hong Kong #evening #cooking #class, #cantonese #cuisine,

No Comments

#

I’m Martha Sherpa, a Chinese professional cookery instructor and the owner of “Cookery.com.hk”. We have relocated from Mongkok to North Point, Hong Kong Island since March 2014. Our new kitchen is just within 2 minutes walk from North Point MTR Station A2 exit.

PLEASE CLICK THE DROP DOWN MENU AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE to access all our class schedule, price, menu description and registration procedure.

We offer scheduled hands on all day, half day and evening cooking classes everyday. All our cooking classes require advance reservation by email. We don’t accept walk in or last minute application.

All our cooking classes are conducted in English. Cooking classes are also available in form of private cooking classes in Cantonese, Mandarin, Taiwan or Fujian dialect, upon request.

Foodies, professional chefs and restaurant owners from different parts of the world come to join our Chinese cookery, Chinese BBQ and Dim Sum cooking classes. During the class, they’ll learn genuine Chinese cooking, marinating technique and the hidden secret in professional Chinese restaurant style cooking. Besides this, a lot of people also send their domestic helpers for our cooking classes, so they can prepare high quality food at home.

No matter your purpose of learning is for commercial cooking or home cooking, you should learn the proper technique. There’s no short cut in learning. For example, you will learn how to deep fry properly, so the food is crispy but not greasy. You’ll learn how to marinate so the shrimp will taste as crunchy as they are in restaurant. You’ll learn how to prepare pork and beef recipes, so they remain juicy and tender after cooking. You’ll learn how to stir fry vegetables, so they’ll taste same as you can get in a good Chinese restaurant, etc.

You may say, you don’t have restaurant style big stove and wok, so you cannot cook as good as restaurant. That’s not true. A wok, a spatula and a ordinary kitchen stove is already enough.

During the class, you have chance to practice. If you practice more at home, you can see the improvement. Cooking is a skill and an art. Student always ask me how to tell when something is cook, my answer is —- From what you see, hear, smell and touch, not by timer.

Besides Chinese cooking classes, Yum Cha or Dim Sum classes, Chinese barbeque lessons and Vegetarian cooking classes, we also offer hands on Thai cooking lessons. In our Thai cookery class, you’ll learn how to prepare authentic Thai cuisine. Some of the recipes are the most sought for recipes in Thai cooking. You will learn how to cook with fresh herb and spices, you have to prepare curry paste or dipping sauce from scratch. Our students always found the food they prepared during the class taste better than what they got in restaurant, because we cook in authentic way. All the curry paste or dipping sauces are made from fresh raw ingredients which they can get in wet market or Thai grocery stores. The commercial one can never be better than that.

99% of our students enjoyed their cooking lessons with us. What they have learnt during their cooking lessons, surpassed their expectations. However, if you’re among the 1% who just prefer those Sit, watch, relax and eat cooking shows or demonstrations, please DON’T consider our cooking class.

My workshop is just an equipped kitchen without unnecessary decorations. Property price in Hong Kong is very expensive, so please don’t expect to see a big kitchen. There’re no soft music background or comfortable sofa for you to sit, relax and watch cooking show . You cannot keep your hands clean, because there’re no helper to cut, marinate the ingredient for you. You have to touch, cut, pound, marinate, cook, eat and wash your own chopping board, knife and wok.

However, this’s what my students usually say, This’s what I want, everything is real, I can’t imagine I can do it all by myself. I’ll show my friends how to cook all these delicious food when I back home, they’ll be surprised.”

Flat F, 14th Floor, Wah Lai Mansion, 62-76 Marble Road, North Point, Hong Kong. (North Point MTR Station A2 exit)

Office Hours: By appointment only. Application will only be accepted in form of email. Without making appointment, visitors will not be admitted.
