I really hope you are enjoying listening to Holden - it is quite a rollercoaster ride, isn't it? He has us laughing one moment and then crying another. Typical emotional life of a 16 - 17 year old?
Continue to "converse" with Mr. Salinger, and use Post-its for comments, reactions, questions, etc. Think about narration and description writing strategies.
Post #3: Discuss what makes Holden a universal, typical teen...worries? angst? opinions? general beliefs? fears? Why is he so sad? Use at least two textual passages (quote and cite) in your lengthy 2 paragraph discussion. Due sometime next week (by 11/7) - 15 pts.
"I still had my red hunting hat on, with the peak around to the back and all. I really got a bang out of that hat" (Salinger 27).
