10H: 9/18/15

Do Now:  Identify one theme from the first two chapters of Catcher.  The theme should be a phrase rather than one word, and it should be specific enough that it applies to the novel but general enough that it can apply to anything else.

Partner Work:

  • Identify two quotes that support each of your chosen themes

Individual Writing:

  • Write one paragraph that explores a specific theme in Catcher.  Your paragraph should open with a focused topic sentence, and it should include at least one example of textual evidence as support.  You must also use the word “tone” at least once as part of your analysis.  The paragraph should be 6-8 sentences long.


  • Complete the paragraph from today’s class
  • Read & annotate chapter 3 in Catcher
