The American Dream Analysis
The idea of the American Dream originates from the Declaration of Independence which states
that all men have certain inalienable rights including “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” For
many, the American Dream represents the ideals of freedom, equality, and opportunity that are
traditionally thought to be available to every American. Others see the American Dream as a life of
personal happiness and wealth. The documentary Park Avenue: Money, Power, and the American
Dream argues that the American Dream has become a fantasy because the inequality in the United
States makes it unattainable for most Americans.
This assignment will require you to consider your ideas on the American Dream and analyze how it is
represented in Park Avenue: Money, Power, and the American Dream and The Great Gatsby. You will
post your analysis to the blog and respond to one of your peer’s posts.
*Note: This assignment is based entirely on your own ideas and you CANNOT do any research to
complete it. Any instances of plagiarism will result in zero.
To begin with, you must watch the documentary.
Part 1
Explain how you personally define the American Dream. Do you see the American Dream today as
focused on freedom and equality or has it become all about wealth? Do you feel that it is an ideal or
something that can still be achieved today? How do your ideas compare to the ideas presented in Park
Avenue: Money, Power, and the American Dream?
Length: maximum 200 words
Part 2
You are to write a second blog answering the fundamental question: Is the American Dream essentially
dishonest – must one be dishonest to achieve it, is it unattainable for all – or is the American Dream a
spiritually pure and optimistic pursuit of a better future for anyone willing to work very hard to reach
their goals?
You must reference a specific character from The Great Gatsby and at least one specific concept
(statistic, quote or idea) from the documentary Park Avenue: Money, Power and the American Dream.
Choosing a character
Jordan: Dishonest and deceptive; driven to reach her goals; somewhat sneaky
Nick: Probably honest; observes the lifestyles of the young, ambitious, wealthy and poor alike; strives to
make his own fortune
Daisy: Self-interested; relatively honest; high-income status, old money; apparently oblivious to her
advantages in life
Tom: Arrogant and completely self-absorbed; relatively honest; high-status, old money; believes in basic
inequalities of people based on birth
Myrtle: Self-interested; relatively honest; low-status; ambitious
Gatsby: Dishonest, but not deceitful; driven to reach his goals; believes in the equalizing power of
wealth
Length: maximum 350 words
Part 3
After everyone has posted, you will read all the posts carefully and respond to one other student’s post
by sharing your ideas on their definition, their analysis of the documentary, and/or their analysis of their
media example.
