Due Today: Completed reading and journal responses through the end of chapter 26 in The Catcher in the Rye.

Targets: I can draw upon text evidence to support interpretations and inferences; I can engage in productive discussion that advances my and my classmates' comprehension of the text.

If you were absent for today's discussion, title a notebook entry "March 25 Discussion: Absent" and address the following prompts:

  1. Identify what you believe is the most important passage thus far in the novel; deconstruct this passage and explain why you believe it is so important.
  2. Create four high-level questions that you might have contributed to discussion–and in particular pose questions that demand interpretation and evidence support. It is okay to pose questions that you do not know the answer to.
  3. Select the most challenging of the four questions you create for item #2 above. Answer that question in a complete claim-context-concretedetail-commentary paragraph.
