The Great Gatsby

How does Fitzgerald tell the story in chapter 6?

I'd like some help with this question like what to write about and what points to cover as I'm a little stuck. Also the question is a bit too vague, so as much help as possible would be much appreciated :)

In Chapter 6, Fitzgerald immerses the reader in looking at Gatsby's life through the theme of social class, or lack thereof. His poor beginnings gave him the drive to improve both himself and his fortunes, so did Daisy. Unfortunately, East coast aristocracy isn't about the money; it's about the family heritage. I would write about the American social classes of the 1920's and the difficulties of moving between them in a true sense. Gatsby had the money to socialize, but he didn't have the name to marry.
